The report added that the six turbines of the dam are in good condition and each turbine has the capacity to generate about 105 megawatts.
'In the next few hours, the hydroelectric plant will recommence operations and supply power to the provinces of Aleppo and Raqa,' it indicated.
As for the dam, officials assure that it stores over nine billion cubic meters, which would improve the situation of irrigation of agricultural crops in the area.
Earlier this month, the Syrian Army took back control of the largest hydroelectric plant in Syria, located in the Tabqa dam in Raqa province and which had been in the hands of terrorists since 2013. ■
