Al-Raqqa - SMART

On Monday, four villages in the al-Raqqa governorate, Northeastern Syria suffered an electricity cut after a converter that feeds the main line reaching the villages was stolen.

Local sources reported that on Sunday night, unknown persons stole the converter, which is connected to the main line that feeds electricity to the villages of al-Ajaj, al-Rawin, al-Rashid and al-Ansar, Western al-Raqqa. The robbers deliberately short circuited the cables on an electricity pillar to facilitate the robbery.

Mahmoud al-Mokhtar, a member of the al-Rashid People's Council of the Kurdish Autonomous Administration (Rojava), said that the incident is not the first of its kind, as unknown persons have stolen cables and converters from areas under the control of the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) before.

Via social media, activists and other civilians accused the Kurdish People's Protection Units (YPG) of neglecting to keep up the security in the governorate, while several people accused YPG members of stealing from houses and illegally confiscating private property in different areas of al-Raqqa.

Recently, robbery and kidnapping incidents have become a daily occurrence in the SDF-controlled governorate of al-Raqqa, including an attack by unknown gunmen on a vehicle belonging to the YPG that was transporting about 2 million US dollars, in addition to several convenience store robberies.
