On Sunday, the General Electricity Company of Libya (GECOL) announced the theft of 2,200 meters of electricity copper wires.
The GECOL added that the theft caused the loss of electricity supply to a safety line at the Qasr Bin Ghashir Distribution Department, and consequently the power cut in parts of the Al Marazeeq area. The company pointed out that it will carry out the necessary maintenance work after determining the damages.
The company also condemned the continued attacks on the components of its electrical network and stressed the need to put an end to this phenomenon which leads to additional losses for the company and power outages in a number of homes.
The GECOL added that acts of theft, looting, and attacks against the electrical network have increased significantly and in multiple regions across Libya.
