Al Jazeera English published this video item, entitled “Lebanon to receive Jordan electricity through Syria” – below is their description.
Lebanon has signed an agreement with Jordan to receive electricity through Syria.
The deal will not face any US sanctions after receiving a special waiver from Washington.
Yet the transaction is not expected to solve Lebanon’s power shortages, providing only a few more hours a day of electricity.
It is instead being seen as a breakthrough for Syrian President Bashar al-Assad’s isolated regime.
