Lebanon to receive Jordan electricity through Syria

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.
