BEIRUT, LEBANON (2:05 A.M.) – The rebel force in northern Hama fired several missiles at one of Syria’s most important power plants tonight, resulting in a number of powerful explosions that could be heard throughout the government and rebel held towns in the area.

According to a local NDF source, the Islamist rebels scored several direct hits on the Mhardeh Power Plant from their positions in Al-Lataminah and Kafr Zita.

As a result of this attack, the Mhardeh Power Plant was badly damaged, leaving millions of Syrians without power along the coast.

In particular, the Mhardeh Power Plant feeds electricity to millions of Syrians living in the densely populated provinces of Hama, Tartous and Latakia.

Repair units have been unable to reach the Mhardeh Power Plant because of the ongoing missile strikes around the predominately Christian town of Mhardeh.

Russia fails particularly in this respect. First, she did not lift a finger to prevent Syria becoming infiltrated by US sponsored terrorists, and when Kremlin finally decided to intervene, they are doing it so ineptly that the terrorists defeated in one place immediately appear in another.

Syrian Govt has the right to summon UNGA, UNSC and also to complaint at the ICC. Why don’t they make more noise than Fakestinians who are hiacking the UN for decades with a body of lies? At least Syria has real reasons to complain! At least French govt really chases terrorists, even if its main turf is far to be as advertised as Syria or Iraq as it’s Western/Central Africa and results are FAR superior even to what Russians do : Boko-Haram, al-Murabitoun, Ansar-Dine, AQIM, MUJAO etc etc etc are simply finished in the region : terrorists were chased the… Read more »
