Deir al-Zor - SMART

The people of the city of Albu Kamal, 125 kilometers east of Deir al-Zor, Northeastern Syria, suffer from a total power outage.

On Tuesday, a local source reported that the power outage followed airstrikes causing the destruction of the city's power station and electricity networks. The Islamic State (IS) also stole several converters and brought them to Iraq.

The source noted that after the Syrian government forces seized the city, they retrieved and restored several major converters, providing electricity to a few neighborhoods.

The source added that the converters work up to six hours a day at a cost of up to 2,000 Syrian pounds (4 US dollars) per ampere.

The source noted the low quality of the converters, which often stop working and take a long time to restore due to the lack of spare parts.

The source also said that most of the city's areas do not receive electricity from the main converters; forcing people to use household generators.

Recently, the city has been home to tension and clashes between the National Defense militia, which is an armed militia formed by the Syrian regime in 2012 to support the regime's military operations in Syria, and the foreign militias supporting the Syrian government. The clashes cause fear civilians, who lived in the same conditions during the IS' control of the city.
