The Al-Zara power plant, in the southern countryside of Hama, went out of service on Thursday, as a result of an attack with shells, by armed groups, according to the Electricity Ministry.
In a statement, the Ministry said that, the attack resulted in the loss of 300 MW, which will reflect negatively on power rationing hours, in the northern, coastal, and central regions.
The maintenance workshops have started the repair works, to return the station into service, as soon as possible, the Ministry added.
A material damage, caused to residential neighbourhoods in Daraa city, due to the shelling attack was also reported.
