In a statement, the Directorate reported a large possibility to work on the start of rationing in the hours of supplying al-Tabqa with electricity during the next few days so that the power outage may reach 12 hours a day.
The source added that this decision came after a meeting held a few days ago with the administration of the Euphrates Dam, citing the reason for this action for several factors, the most important of which is “the authorities of the Turkish state to cut the flow of water destined for the Syrian territory, which led to a decline in the level of water reserves in Lake Euphrates, With about 80 km and a width of up to 8 km. It absorbs about 11 billion cubic meters of water. 8 hydroelectric turbines generate 100 megawatts of power, which feed 25% of Syria.
The electricity has returned to the area of al-Tabqa west of Raqqa for more than 3 months to feed more than 90% of al-Tabqa area (city and countryside).
It is worth mentioning that the Turkish authorities have erected dozens of dams on the Euphrates and Dijla rivers for political, cultural and economic reasons, perhaps the most important of which is the dumping of Kurdish culture and the political and economic pressure on the peoples of Syria and Iraq in the context of implementing their expansionist plans.
