All of Lebanon without power due to fuel shortage - DW News.

Lebanon has been plunged into darkness, after its two largest power stations were shut down due to a prolonged fuel shortage.
Officials say the outage will last several days. Many in the country rely on private generators, but diesel is in short supply. Neighboring Iran has pledged to send more fuel shipments. Lebanon has suffered several power cuts in recent months amid an economic crisis that has seen the value of its currency fall by 90 percent since 2019. The army has been deployed to stop bank runs in Beirut.
