Lebanon, which is located in the Middle East, was completely left without electricity due to the shutdown of the country’s two largest power plants, Al-Zahrani and Deir Ammar, due to a lack of fuel for their operation. Reported by Reuters.

“The Lebanese power grid has completely stopped working and it is unlikely that it will continue to operate until Monday or for several days.”– said a government official.

The state-owned electricity company confirmed in a statement that the power plant in Zahran has been shut down and in Deir Ammar it has stopped as early as Friday.

“The shutdown of two power plants directly affected the stability of the power grid and led to its complete shutdown without the possibility of resuming operation.”The company said in a statement, adding that the Lebanese army agreed to provide some fuel for the two CHP plants.

It is noted that many Lebanese have diesel generators, but fuel for them is also in short supply, as Lebanon is paralyzed by the economic crisis, which is exacerbated by cuts in fuel supplies from abroad.
