Early Thursday afternoon there was a reported power outage in Syria devastatingly . There are those who are located outside of the major cities and aren’t controlled by the regime who do not even have electricity as ISIS and other large militant groups control a large part of the country. Efforts to relaunch power service could take two to 12 hours, a Ministry of Electricity official said. Militants had hit part of a power-generating station with rockets in the western city of Hama. The Syrian government hasn't said whether this attack was linked to the nationwide outage; the ministry said maintenance workers were fixing the damage.
