Power Outage In The Building Of Lebanon’s Energy Ministry Due To Theft


According to Al-Jadeed TV, the building of the Lebanese ministry of energy has been suffering from a power outage for the past 2 days due to the theft of cables and control panels of the backup generators belonging to the ministry building.

The power outage comes as the state’s electricity company, Electricité du Liban, barely secures an hour of electricity per day, leaving Lebanon’s population of more than 6.8 million people without public power

Lebanon has been dealing with energy issues for decades; long outages have long been the everyday normal of the people.

However, the country’s current economic crisis, combined with political corruption, has transformed what was once a serious but manageable inconvenience into a far more acute crisis.
