The power supply in Syria's Aleppo will be boosted this year thanks to new capacity installed by its ally Iran, a step toward reviving the industrial hub whose electricity grid has been destroyed in seven years of war, a Syrian official said.Syrian government forces, with critical help from Iran-backed militias and the Russian air force, recovered full control of Aleppo some 14 months ago, driving out rebels who had held the city's eastern districts.Power provision today ranges between 12 and 14 hours a day in parts of the city where there is electricity, Saleh said.But some parts of the city, specifically areas that were under rebel control, have yet to be reconnected to the power grid, he said.
