Armed clashes erupted on Thursday evening in the Maya area between armed forces from Al-Zawiya and Warshafana.

The armed clashes, which continued until Friday morning, caused the closure of internal roads with sand barriers between the areas of Warshafana and Al-Zawiya.

The General Electricity Company of Libya (GECOL) announced that because of the armed clashes, three generation units were severely damaged in the dual power station, adding that this damage has resulted in the loss of more than 300 megawatts of power from the public electricity grid.
