Radical militants shelled the al-Zarah power plant in the northern Hama countryside on November 25, according to the Syrian Arab News Agency (SANA).
“Two artillery rounds were fired by the terrorist groups, the first one landed in a depot and the second on an asphalt road inside the plant, which caused material loses in the depot,” Ali Hifa the director of the al-Zarah power plant told the SANA’s reporter in Hama.
The al-Zarah power plant is one of the key civilian infrastructure objects in central Syria. The plant provides both government and opposition-held areas in the region with electricity.
In response to this new violation of the Russian-Turkish deconfliction agreement, the SAA artillery shelled several positions of the militants in the towns of al-Zakah, Latmin, al-Janabirah and Kafr Zita in the northern Hama countries.
The attack on the al-Zarah power plant comes only hours after a chemical attack on the city of Aleppo, which left more than 100 civilians, including children, intoxicated. Both attacks show that the remaining militants in northern are only getting more aggressive.
