|Some tires were set ablaze and some roads were blocked such as Ghout Al-Shaal, Al-Saba crossroad and in the Al-Firnaj neighborhood. Many protesters had signs protesting the government and its Presidential Council headed by Faiez Serraj. They demanded solutions to the problems they face including long power outages, a cash crisis and now a water shortage. The situation is exacerbated by high temperatures.|
“I believe the network will not bear this much longer and we are again warning that Tripoli might fall into a complete darkness within days.”The situation is building resentment not just against the GNA but also against those areas that have maintained the power supply. Protesters in Ras Hassan tried to storm Al-Madar mobile company to sever power links to towns that are refusing to share in the power outages.
