Terrorist groups on Thursday attacked gas and fuel transfer pipelines that feed electric power generation stations in the Southern part of Syria.
In a statement to state news agency, Minister of Electricity Imad Khamis said that the terrorist attacks caused power stations to go completely out of service and a blackout in the provinces of Daraa, Sweida, Quneitra, Damascus and Damascus Countryside.
Khamis pointed out that about 20 percent of Southern Syria’s need to electricity was ensured, asserting that the Ministry of Petroleum and Mineral Resources’ maintenance workshops will start repair today.
Terrorist groups attacked last June the gas and fuel pipelines in the Southern region, causing a blackout in the region.
