The Director General of the Children's Hospital in Tripoli, Ahmed Al-Busaifi, said that the power outage that hit the hospital Monday night was due to a technical defect as a result of a short circuit, and it was maintained and the problem was addressed by the General Electricity Company.

Al-Busaifi confirmed the stability of the health condition of nine patients who were in intensive care, as well as the newborns.

Ambulances of the Emergency Medicine and Support Center rushed to the place, and public and private hospitals in Tripoli declared an emergency following the power outage, in preparation for the possibility of the children's health condition being affected in the intensive care unit.
