Breaking: Rebels strike western Syria’s primary power grid to leave millions without electricity
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.
