Chairman of the General Electricity Company of Libya (GECOL), Abdul Majid Hamza, warned that the western region might plunge into total darkness if any of the electrical circuits were damaged, saying that there are already 16 power lines out of service, due to the armed clashes in the outskirts of the capital.

Hamza explained in a press conference that several areas south of Tripoli are now in total blackout and that the company's technicians were unable to restore the electricity service due to the continued clashes.
