The electricity system in the occupied Aden province on Tuesday got out of service due to a technical glitch, local sources reported

Sources said that one of the energy companies turned off a 30 MW plant, causing electricity outage in most of Aden’s directorates.

The company attributed the suspension of electricity supply in the city due to the continued procrastination of Hadi’s government in fulfilling its accumulated obligations for more than two years.

The power outage caused discontent and anger among citizens, who are suffering from escalating crises in Aden, rising prices, the collapse of the currency, the suspension of salaries and a domestic gas crisis.

The suspension of energy companies from providing their services is likely to lead to long-term power outages that would exacerbate the suffering of the city’s residents, especially during the current Islamic holy month of Ramadan.
