    Materials delivered to key Syrian port cities to 'improve' power grid

    September 15, 2022 - BBC Newsfile


      By BBC Monitoring

      Electrical equipment and supplies have been delivered to two key Syrian port cities, state news agency Sana has reported, posting a video of local officials at one major substation.

      In separate posts on its website and Facebook page on 14 and 15 September, Sana said the deliveries to Latakia and Tartous (also Tartus) were destined to "improve the electrical network".

      The news comes weeks after officials hosted by Syrian state TV offered a relatively frank discussion of severe power cuts in both areas, which in turn were connected with water shortages.

      Sana's report on Tartous included photos of large cable reels and what appeared to be electrical transformers loaded on large lorries.

      A video accompanying its coverage of the delivery to Latakia meanwhile showed trucks carrying similar materials, followed by footage from a substation, during a visit by officials including Electricity Minister Ghassan al-Zamel.

      Al-Zamel told Sana in the video that 12 lorries had delivered key materials to Latakia "to support the province, rehabilitate the electrical network and increasing the capacity of electrical grids".

      Some of the video showed adjacent buildings that appeared to have been damaged by bombardment.
