Lebanon’s electricity grid has been shut down across the country as the two main power stations in al-Zahrani and Deir Ammar run out of fuel. Local news website Elnashara gave this information.
The Thermo Electric plant at Jharani Power Station halted on Saturday, while the Deer Ammar plant shut down on Friday due to fuel shortage, Xinhua news agency quoted the website as saying.
It is being told that there will be a power outage for a few days.
On Saturday, Lebanon’s state power company renewed its warning that the country would face a total blackout if the central bank fails to buy fuel oil to run power plants.
Lebanon is grappling with fuel shortages due to its financial crisis, which forced thousands of businesses to close their doors, while most citizens rely on private generators.
