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.
