The Man-made River Authority (MMRA) confirmed that the station (No. 586) of the water system was subjected to sabotage in the city of Zliten last Thursday.

"A citizen trespassed on the mentioned station, causing an interruption in the supplying lines feeding the coastal cities, including Misurata, Zliten, Al-Khoms, and Garabulli, in addition to the neighbouring areas," MMRA explained.

The control room of Al-Hasawna Water System pointed out that it was forced to empty one million cubic meters of water to enable the work team of carrying out repair service, in order to bring the station back into operation.
