NNA - The people of West Bekaa organized a sit-in this afternoon in front of the Lebanese Electricity Company's branch in Mashghara to protest the long power cuts and severe rationing suffered by citizens, with the participation of municipality heads, prominent figures and religious leaders from the region, NNA correspondent in West Bekaa reported on Sunday.

Speaking on behalf of citizens, the Imam of the town of Mashghara, Sheikh Abbas Dibeh, said: "It is not permissible to reward us, the people of this dear region of Lebanon, by depriving us of electricity power especially that we have borne the consequences of the Litani project that has cut off areas of our land...and we also suffered the Israeli occupation and made great sacrifices!"

In this context, the Imam pointed to escalation steps to be taken in the event that the status quo persists.

For his part, the Imam of the town of Qaraoun, Sheikh Fadi Nassif, condemned "the measures that render people's lives more difficult and add to their harsh daily living conditions."
