After ten days of disruption, Al Madar’s . . .[restrict]said its mobile service in eastern Libya is back up and running thanks to the delivery of fuel to emergency generators.
Though earlier this week, engineers were able to repair damage to a key mast on the company’s Benghazi headquarters in Bouatni, mains power had been knocked out in fighting in the city. Gunfire in the district prevented the delivery of fuel to emergency generators and the service went down.
That fuel yesterday finally got through. “Madar telecommunication now has been fully restored to the eastern area, following repairs in the station and damaged mast” the firm’s spokesman, Mohammed Al-Buderi told the Libya Herald.
Buderi also said that Al Madar had been supporting refugees in Marj, providing blankets, baby food, generators and heaters to people had fled from Benghazi. “We also plan to give humanitarian help to refugees inside Benghazi in the next few days” he said.
