Private Generators Provide Temporary Solution to Electricity Shortage in Idlib

The constant power cuts in the towns and cities of Idlib have pushed the citizens toward finding alternative sources of electricity.

After losing hope that their electricity, which is generated by stations in areas under the control of the Damascus-based central government , would return, some of the citizens pooled their resources to buy massive generators in order to provide shops and residential areas with electricity in return for a monthly subscription fee.
