Militants Failed to Destroy Power Pylon in Kabul

The militants attempted to fully cut the supply of electricity to Kabul as the last leg of a transmission tower defied the intensity of an explosion, preventing a total blackout in the capital.

The State-run utility firm, Da Afghanistan Breshna Sherkat, in a statement said the militants attempted to fully cut the supply of electricity to Kabul by detonating the last transmission tower which is being used to supply electricity to Kabul.

The statement further added that the militants detonated explosives close to 613 power pylon in Chemtala of Kabul late on Sunday, destroying three three of the four foundation legs of the tower.

However, Da Breshna Sherkat said the fourth foundation leg of the pylon remained intact which prevented the total collapse of the tower and as a result a total blackout was prevented in the capital.
