Following continuous violations | Protestors break into “Turkish electricity company” in Afrin

Aleppo province: SOHR activists have monitored a sit in by residents in Afrin, which is controlled by Turkish forces and their proxies north western of Aleppo, in front of the Turkish company “STE”, following the violations and the repeated cutting of power for technical faults, where the protestors broke into the building and sabotaged and destroyed its contents.

Yesterday, residents called for staging peaceful protests against the Turkish energy company which provides “Euphrates Shield” and Olive Branch” areas in the northern and north-eastern countryside of Aleppo with electricity.


According to SOHR sources, these calls followed the failure of respond by the administration of the energy company to the decisions of the “Rights Restitution Committee” in Afrin city. Moreover, the energy company’s administration refused to attend a session of inquiry in order to clarify the reason behind the frequent power outages and the company’s working mechanism.


This came after the energy company cut off power for ten hours every day in light the extreme hot weather under the pretext of “the increasing pressure on power grid cables and changing the system of rationing.”
