The power was cut in Al-Tayyana and Thiban generally, since Al-Omar oilfield stopped supplying the areas of Deir Ezzor with electricity due to the repeated shelling by the warplanes of the US-led coalition.
The electricity outage led to the suspension of the water station which is working at a rate of 8 hours every three days which forced people to depend on house wells and buying water to make up the severe lack of water, each barrel of water coasts between 750 and 1000 sp.
