Extending its help to Lebanon after the August 4 explosion, Iraq recently donated over a million liters of fuel to be used for electricity production, according to outgoing Energy Minister Raymond Ghajar.
The donation was taken to the Zahrani Power Plant. However, after examination, the donation would, unfortunately, be marked as not useful.
On Wednesday, Lebanon’s Energy Ministry released a statement stating that the 1,800,000 liters of gas oil donated by Iraq were not suitable for use in electricity factories and power plants.
The unsuitable fuel was therefore given to the army to distribute it to its units according to their needs.
Nevertheless, Lebanon’s Energy Ministry thanked Iraq for its gift and for standing by Lebanon during this difficult time.
