Missile shelling of a power station, produced by militants, left all Syria without electricity

51
Today, absolutely the entire territory of the Syrian Arab Republic was left without power supply. Initially, it was reported that the reason for this could be an incident in the area of ​​an electrical substation in the metropolitan province of Damascus, but then it turned out that the reason was a major terrorist act in the province of Hama. Information Agency Sputnik reports that the militants fired a rocket at a power station near the city of Al-Zahr.


As a result of rocket hits, several generating installations failed. In addition, power supply lines were broken, transmission lines were damaged.



According to some reports, the militants could carry out attacks on generating capacity in other provinces of Syria.

The fact that the whole country was left without electricity (and this is one of the biggest outages in the whole history Middle East), says that the rally by militants and their main sponsors was carefully planned. Moreover, it was not done without the participation of those who have a good idea of ​​the entire energy system of the country. It is hardly accidental that the militants decided to fire on this particular power plant, which is a key element in the power supply system of the Syrian Arab Republic.

As a result of the terrorist act, the humanitarian situation, which was already the most complicated, takes even more terrifying forms. Without electricity, medical institutions remain, whose own generating capacity is simply not enough to ensure efficient operation.

          Yes, the guys are the same. New Russia, the destruction of electricity supply, Crimea, the destruction of power lines.

        There are much more questions:
        1. What type of missiles and how many were fired upon?
        2. Where did the broads, until then not particularly shining with missile forces, have such missiles capable of causing large-scale damage to a large object?
        3. From what direction and range was the shelling?
        4. How were the broads allowed on the launch range?
        And these are just the basic questions. Answers to these questions are likely to lead to NATO special forces. Terrorist oslolyubs are unlikely to master such a special operation.

          1 / 2 - sponsors in recent weeks quite a few Bulgarian hailstones threw, both to the north and to the south.
          3 - with a little. There, the distances are small 10-15km to the broads, in Hama there Nusryata and Akhrarovtsy are mostly, well, the Greens with TOU cement tank dangerous.
          4 - so the world is! Hama is almost completely included in the Safe Zone. That is, you can’t bomb.

    They should have done this for a long time - why didn’t they want or could not? Well this is a war, to cut and burn people standards for them, but they didn’t touch the electric station. But the fact that such a strategic object without cover is not clear.
    Then we should expect similar attacks on other similar vital structures.

      Previously, terrorists believed that they would be able to create a caliphate in the occupied territory. Therefore, they kept the infrastructure. Now it’s obvious that faith in victory has left even the most ardent fanatics. The agony began.

      In Hama, they progressed gradually. The sailors were recaptured from the army, at one time they even collected banners for the Hama itself, already under the VKS, then this thwarted the offensive in South Aleppo.

      Everything is close there and the broads are quite close to the same Hama (at the Grad volley). It can be seen, therefore, did not crush, with an eye to use then.

    As a result of the terrorist act, the humanitarian situation, which was already the most complicated, takes even more terrifying forms. Without electricity, medical institutions remain, whose own generating capacity is simply not enough to ensure efficient operation.

    The Syrian Ministry of Energy reported that specialists were able to establish the cause of the power outage throughout the country. According to the data at 17:00, electricity has already been restored in some regions.

    SANA News Agency reports that full electricity supply will be restored by midnight.
    State-owned telecommunications company Syrian Telecom said the consequences of the failure have been eliminated. internet works all over the country
    laughing

    Power supply is gradually returning to all areas

    The fact that the whole country was left without electricity (and this is one of the largest outages in the entire history of the Middle East) suggests that the action by the militants and their main sponsors was carefully planned.

    No. This suggests that Syria’s power system is poorly planned, poorly backed up, and poorly maintained.

      Need to talk about cascading outages in the US and Canada, in 2003?
      A power surge in western New York and Canada on August 14 and causing a series of power outages throughout the region led to massive outages and left a significant portion of the inhabitants of at least eight states in the Northwest and in the midwest

              read about the reasons for Big Blackout.

              The causes of the accident, as it turned out, are as follows [3]:

              Trees under power lines periodically trimmed. In Cleveland, Ohio, this was not done.
              Due to the very high energy consumption, the power lines in Cleveland warmed up, sagged (due to the thermal expansion of the wires) and touched the trees. A short circuit has occurred.

              The Cleveland Power Station is out of order.

              Due to an error in the computer system, and also due to a lack of personnel, other control centers were not notified.

              A chain shutdown of about 100 other power plants occurred.

              They repeated one fig in 2011, this is also, of course, a chain of accidents.
              In the United States, the reason for the blackout was revealed within hours of the accident. The American company San Diego Gas and Electric (SDGE), which is responsible for the supply of electricity in the southeast of the country, blamed the failure on the Arizona Public Service (APS). According to APS representatives, the accident occurred during work at the North Gila electrical substation in the Yuma area of ​​Arizona. One of the electricians working on the site made a critical mistake that "started" the chain process.

              However, it is not fully understood how one person could turn off the electricity to 6 million Americans. In a normal situation, in case of malfunctions at the substation, the electricity should have been cut off only in the Yuma region. However, the Yuma malfunction caused a chain shutdown of generators at the San Onofre nuclear power plant. How this happened remains to be seen by APS and SDGE specialists.

              The conclusion is simple: they do not control anything and seem to learn nothing.

          Fan outages are possible only in case of large-scale disasters or lack of duplication and redundancy! In the states, duplication and redundancy (connecting power from at least two power lines from different suppliers with their own generating capacities) are not particularly affected! Particularly important facilities in the USA have their own generators, but the private sector can rely only on itself.

        But about these miracles of the Israeli energy sector, what can we say that generally inadequate workers who boot on the buttons sit there?
        The worker sat on the button, and half of Israel was left without light
        Residents of a number of northern and central regions of Israel were unpleasantly surprised by the sudden outage.
        The lights went out in Tel Aviv, Rehovot, Ramat Gan, Petah Tikva, Raanan, Hod Hasharon, Herzliya, Givatayim, Netanya and in the vicinity of Haifa. Many were stuck in stopped elevators, and traffic jams appeared on long-distance routes, as traffic lights turned off at intersections.
        Initially, the cause of the accident was unclear. Later, however, it turned out that it was caused by a sudden shutdown of the gas supply to the Hagit CHP. Gas at the CHP is supplied by Netivei Gaz.
        It follows from the company's statement that one of its employees "accidentally pressed or sat down on a button that shut off the gas supply."

    / Corr. TASS Dmitry Zelenin /. The electricity supply "has been restored to most of the Syrian provinces." According to the SANA news agency, "by midnight, the power supply will be fully restored as soon as the stopped turbines are connected."
    The Syrian Electricity Ministry has not confirmed speculation that the power system outage was caused by sabotage. A spokesman for the department in Damascus told the SANA agency that "the repair teams have established the cause of the failure," but did not say a word about possible sabotage. According to him, "the problems will be quickly eliminated."
    According to eyewitnesses, a power outage in the capital occurred in the daytime. Probably, for the same reason, the Internet and mobile communications have partially failed. The Syrian telecommunications campaign has confirmed the interruption in the provision of services.
