Chairman of the General Electricity Company of Libya (GECOL), Abdul Majid Hamza, said Sunday that the aggression of Khalifa Haftar on Tripoli had ceased all the projects the company has been working on to end the power shortage crisis.

"The company faced obstacles during its work to maintain the stations affected by the clashes in southern Tripoli. Technicians and engineers were at risk, despite their entry with the Red Crescent teams," GECOL head said.

He also pointed out that the company was in the process of handing over the stations, west of Tripoli and Misurata, last April, yet one of the implementing companies refused to continue work after the eruption of war in Tripoli.
