Damascus plunged into darkness


Electricity has been shut down in many neighbourhoods of Damascus, during the night of Tuesday the 27th to Wednesday the 28th. Truck convoys were moving improbable freights.

The Syrian government was taking precautions in regards to the possible US bombing.

Even satellites are unable to precisely record what is going on in pitch dark.
