Yemen lost power after attacks on substations and power lines, and the Saudi Arabia-led coalition attacked communications infrastructure.

Yemen’s capital and several provinces have lost power after armed militias attacked substations east of Sanaa, a representative of the country’s Energy Ministry told Sputnik.

The attacks, together with the state company’s lack of fuel for power plants and Saudi-led coalition attacks on telecommunications infrastructure threaten to cut Yemen off from the world.

“Armed gangs attacked substations and power lines in the Maarab province this morning, which led to a complete loss of power supplies from Yemen’s state energy company.”

On Sunday, Yemen’s state energy company said that it stopped generating power due to a lack of fuel. The company asked international organizations to assist in fuel supplies “before the provinces plunge into darkness.”
