BEIRUT: The government has managed to restore 30 percent of electricity supplies to provinces in Damascus and the south of Syria after a recent “terrorist” attack, state news agency SANA said Sunday.
“The [Electricity] Ministry has taken exceptional steps to secure 30 percent of the needs of the southern region through alternative sources,” a source from the ministry was quoted by SANA as saying.
A rebel attack on a power station in the extreme south of the country late last month was responsible for the disruption.
