Taliban militants have blown up power transmission poles in Baghlan province, leaving the capital of Afghanistan, Kabul, and the provinces closest to it without electricity. This is reported by the Afghan national energy company "Breshna".
The poles of power transmission lines were damaged in the territory of the village of Kelagai in Baghlan province.
вЂњThe company's technical staff is trying to solve the problem and reconnect electricity to the capital and these provinces as the situation improves,вЂќ the report says.
Afghanistan imports electricity from neighboring Tajikistan, Uzbekistan, and Turkmenistan. Power transmission poles from time to time become targets of militants of terrorist organizations.
