"The network is back to normal, as it was before the Gasoil (cheap diesel fuel) ran out at Deir Ammar and Zahrani," he said in a statement
The Lebanon authorities engaged the army to supply fuel to two power stations with 6,000 kiloliters of Gasoil. However, this move won’t help to resolve the fuel crunch in Lebanon.

Lebanon is facing a huge crisis following a temporary government turmoil, mismanagement, and last year’s explosion in the Beirut port that destroyed half of the capital buildings, killed at least 200, and injured 6,000 people.
Since 2019 the Lebanon currency has depreciated by 90% as the UN claimed that almost 80% of the country's population are forced to live in total poverty without a chance to find a job. Since the early 90s, Lebanon’s electricity sector has lost more than $40 billion.
The Lebanese people suffer from a lack of drinking water, fuel, and medication. The residents of the cities were forced to get used to permanent electricity outages.
