The Middle East Airlines (MEA) call center has been suspended due to disruptions in the Ogero network, MEA announced on Tuesday.
“A malfunction occurred in the Ogero network, which led to the current unavailability of the communication service through the MEA Call Center,” MEA said in a statement.
“The technical teams are working to address this malfunction, and the service will be restored as soon as possible.”
The Ogero network has been facing sporadic blackouts affecting various areas over the past couple of weeks, partly due to the shortage of diesel fuel and the daily power cuts taking place in Lebanon.
One such blackout deprived several Lebanese areas of internet connectivity on Monday.
In an attempt to combat monopolies, the Lebanese Army and the Internal Security Forces recently began to crack down on black-market traders and hoarders, confiscating their reserves of fuel and distributing them to locals.
The raids have exposed a nationwide problem of fuel storage and resulted in the confiscation and redistribution of hundreds of thousands of liters of diesel fuel and gasoline in a matter of four days.
Between Monday and Tuesday alone, nearly 800,000 liters of fuel were seized by the Lebanese Army and the Internal Security Forces and distributed to hospitals, bakeries, and other facilities.
