 The Ministry said in a statement, that the incident also damaged the wires in the Al-Muzamilat area, west of Nineveh Governorate.

In the past week, the northern power transmission system in the governorates of Nineveh, Kirkuk and Saladin was targeted which destroyed 20 towers, and led to power outage.
