Iran builds power plant in western Syria

Iran has started building a power plant in the western Syrian province of Latakia as part of the Islamic Republic’s bid to help the Arab country rebuild itself after more than of a decade of foreign-imposed war.

On Sunday, it was reported that a number of gas turbines had been shipped to the province in line with Iran’s efforts to carry out the project.

Pictures circulated across the social media showed the huge equipment entering Latakia using heavy transport vehicles.

Iran’s Mapna Group, a sprawling industrial conglomerate, has been tasked with implementing the project.
