Syria Plunges Into Darkness as ‘Nationwide Blackout’ Strikes, Cause Unknown – YouTube

Syria has plunged into dark as the country’s electricity network is down for unknown reasons, state media reports say.

“The electricity network has been cut in all governorates,” official news agency SANA said on Thursday, quoting a source in the Ministry for Electricity.

The television report added that “attempts to find out the cause of the outage” had started.

According to residents in the capital, Damascus, they have been without power since 1:00 p.m. local time (1100 GMT).

According to Syria’s state mobile provider, its Internet service had been “partially cut due to part of the network unexpectedly malfunctioning.”

Later reports by SANA quoted the Syrian electricity minister as saying that the electricity supply was gradually returning in different parts of the country, while power is expected to be restored by midnight.

Syria has been hit by a number of partial power cuts since the foreign-backed militancy began in the country in 2011, with some of the blackouts being blamed on Takfiri terrorists targeting electricity networks around.
