Electricity supply in the Syrian province of Daraa will be fully restored by 2023 after distribution substations are repaired, head of the provincial government’s electricity department Hasan Zamel told reporters on Thursday.

“The ministry of electricity in Damascus has developed a plan for full restoration of electricity in Daraa by 2023. Restoration will take so much time for two reasons: firstly, because power grids were seriously damaged by militants, and secondly, because of insufficient financing,” Zamel said.

He added that all residents will get access to electricity this year, but only at certain times of the day. Full electricity supply will be restored only in four years.

Zamel noted that “power grids in Daraa will need to be re-built from scratch.” Infrastructure damages in the Daraa province are estimated at around $85 million, whole only $11.6 million were allocated for repairs, he concluded.

Seems SDF is doing a better job in Raqqah, there electricity is again available in the whole of the city, even if some houses yet have to be repaired and connected. They had even more damage.

In full time ? In the whole province ? Because this is what the article is talking about, in the whole Daraa province and in full time or at certain times, The US leftshits are so retarded that they don’t know how to read their languages LOL.

The SDF is undergoing every day uprising and attack from people of northern Syria and sometimes by ISIS sleeper cells, unfortunately for you the north of Syria is in chaos.

Not as much as in many parts in Syria. Because of partial reporting, like here, reports are not a reflection of total reality. Reconstruction is going at a full speed. My comnent was meant for Raqqah city, but largely encompassess the region as such. There are many projects to reinstall waterworks or install new ones, electricity grids, make new briges new schools, new roads. SDF does not need large amounts as there are many volonteers, many working for a small salary, no large companies or government cronies making profits.

Example is/ are Manbij, Kobane, Tabqah.

Today again several killed among SDF in Deir Ezzor, Raqqah and Al Hassakah. Tribal leader from Al Bou Khamiss “Habiss Al Balkhi” killed in SDF prison, children dying from freeze in Al Hassakah, the list is very long every day. There are even looting from SDF in Deir Ezzor. Al Masdar News and mainstream media never report these events and you are wrong AMN is a part of mainstream Gulf states backed propaganda tool.

You will see, soon or later the SDF and the US coalition will collapse and loyalist Syria will take control of all north.

daraa started the arab spring in syria. assad saw what happened to ben ali, gaddafi, mubarak and salah so he protected his family business. the rest, as they say, is history

Syrian govt should consider off-grid job, getting cheap solar panels and small wind turbines from China : better take the opportunity to go green instead going on with oil/gas plants
