DAMASCUS, October 24 (Itar-Tass) - Supplies of electric power to the Syrian cities blacked out as a result of a terrorist act will resume within 48 hours, Syria’s Energy Minister Imad Khamis said Wednesday night.
A number of districts in Damascus and a few other cities in the country were blacked out Wednesday night as a result of a terrorist explosion on a pipeline delivering natural gas to a distribution substation in southern Damascus.
By the time of reporting, electricity outages had been confirmed in Tartous, Latakiya, Homs, and Tal Kalakh. Mobile telephony services were heavily disrupted there, too.
Damascus found itself affected by a full blackout and a fire was blazing at the site of explosion.
