Presentation Transcript

The “Matka” dam is an accumulation designed for production of electrical energy.

It is built on the river Treska. It is situated at about 15km from Skopje.


In the past several days the terrorist group “Zadek”, through the media, has been announcing possible targets for action.

A series of explosions in the previous days have been registered, with no material damage or loss of lives, in the wider surroundings of the city Skopje and the city area.

The media reports that the terrorist organization “Zadek” had taken the responsibility for the attack.


Guards reported that a strong detonation was heard before the damage had occurred on one part of the dam. Early analyses imply a terrorist act.

Because of the existing indications and declarations, greater measures of precaution have been taken, a Crisis Management Centre has been established and it is functioning in an incomplete structure.


According to the early information from the Ministry of Interior, it is a terrorist organization that is linked with international criminal groups and at the same time a series of terrorist attacks have occurred in countries of the region.

The Ministry of Interior, Ministry of Defence and Intelligence Agency are taking action within their responsibilities.


One part of the city is without electricity, water and telephone links (fixed and mobile).

First analyses report that parts at a distance of 2 km from the dam have been affected, including the following villages: Dolna Matka, Sisevo, Glumovo and Cicino Selo.

Half an hour after the attack, the Crisis Management Centre (CMC) approves the ejaculation of water and initiates the accumulation of the complete CMC and goes in session for further work.

Panic by residents is visible; the Civil Defence units are activated.

The population is informed continuously through the media.
