Many areas of Tripoli and the surrounding district have been experienced blackouts as part of an effort to preserve electric power.
The gas facilities in Zliten, east of Tripoli, where electricity is generated for the Libyan capital have been immobilized as a result of aerial bombardments. Two electricity towers, respectively in Jalo and Ojala were also deliberately attacked by NATO.
Electricity towers in other areas have also been attacked. A power station in Tiji, which the Libyan government is now in the process of repairing, was also attacked.
