DAMASCUS, SYRIA (4:00 P.M.) – The Syrian government and Kurdish forces in Raqqa made a deal in which Syrian specialists and engineers will take over Tabqa dam and the hydroelectric power plant on the Euphrates River in order to re-operate it again.

According to the agreement, specialist and engineers who had previously worked in the facilities will take over again in order to fix them and make them operational again.

The Dam has been under the control of the US-backed Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) since May 2017 when the Islamic State was defeated in its de-facto capital.

However, during the battles against ISIS, the US coalition hit the Dam infrastructure with airstrikes, partially destroying the engine and operating rooms.

Under the same deal, the Syrian government will also take over Tishrin Dam and HPP located upstream of the Tabqa Dam.

Just like when Iran’s puppet Zarqawi was smuggled in Iraq and created the Iraqi’s al-Qaeda branch, namely ISIS, using AQ habitual Qatari funding at the start, then split from Osama and allied to Iraqi Ba’athists like al-Douri, etc etc, going on with Iranian funding… We’ve seen how they had great humanitarian sense, so is it for Hamas, which even publicly brags about its use of human shields… You seem to have serious double standards… When time will come to pay for crimes, again, it won’t be senile Khamenei that will have the bill charged on his bütt, but the innocent… Read more »

“However, during the battles against ISIS, the US coalition hit the Dam infrastructure with airstrikes,”….should actually read:However, during the fake battles against ISIS, the US coalition used it as an excuse to hit the Dam infrastructure with airstrikes, continuing their illegal attacks on civilian infrastructure.

Great news, I wonder when Kurds will open their eyes and see that being under USA umbrella is not at all good idea.
