Shafaq News/ The General Company for Northern Electricity Transmission announced today that the transmission line east of Mosul was suspended due to the explosion of an energy tower in Nineveh Governorate.

 The company said in a statement, that at dawn today, the power line east of Mosul - Mosul Dam with a voltage of 400 kV was out of service, after an explosive device was detonated on tower No. 23.
