The southern Yemeni city of Aden has witnessed a complete power outage due to the decommissioning of electricity stations.
Local residents said one of the power companies had turned off its 30-megawatt plant, causing a major power outage to most of Aden’s districts.
The company attributed the suspension of the electricity supply to the continued procrastination by the coalition-backed government in its financial obligations, accumulated for more than two years.
The power outage has caused discontent and anger among Yemeni citizens who are suffering greatly as a result of the escalation of crises in the city.
The cessation of energy companies from providing their services is likely to lead to ongoing power outages for many hours, turning the summer of Aden unbearable and exacerbating the suffering of its residents.
