The country’s power distributor, Da Afghanistan Breshna Sherkat (DABS), on Tuesday said that 23 electricity pylons have been destroyed or damaged by explosions in just a month’s time, raising concerns over the stability of the imported power as many areas now face power outages.
Three power pylons were damaged by explosions over the last day–two in Salang district, Parwan province, and one in Herat province, disrupting the imported power supply from Uzbekistan and Iran in the two provinces.
The damage to power pylons in Salang district disrupted the electricity supply to Kabul and seven other provinces. DABS said the power lines have been partially reconnected.
