Syrian militants have put a large power-plant in the province of Homs out of commission after attacking it with a salvo of rocket fire. The terrorist act has caused power shortages throughout the country’s west.
On Thursday morning, Syrian rebels attacked with rocket fire the Al-Zahraa power-plant – located in northern countryside of Homs province. Sources say that militant forces fired at least five rockets toward the energy site.
Not only did all of the rockets succeed in hitting the Al-Zahraa plant, the damage caused by them was extensive enough to put it out of service.
The end result has seen the Syrian energy authority be forced to implement power saving cuts throughout all the major cities and towns in Syria’s west.
At the present time, Syrian government engineers are working on repairing the Al-Zahraa power-plant in order to restore energy rations to Syria’s main cities to the level they were at before the attack.
