Zahle, along with 16 villages that feed from the service of the Zahle Electricity Company, has been in shock since this morning, Saturday, September 25, the latest of which was a recorded video, in which the company’s general manager, Asaad Nakad, appeared, welcoming Iranian diesel and in the Iranian language: “Khosh Amdid,” praising “Al-Sayed” as “One of the few who make promises and keep their word.” The video culminates in the company’s purchase of quantities of “Iranian diesel” arriving in Lebanon in convoys that Hezbollah circles called “convoys to break the siege.” It continues to trickle through the “illegal” Hosh al-Sayed Ali crossing in Hermel, amid suspicious silence from the state and its official agencies.Millions of liters
So without introductions, and before public opinion was informed about the details of the “deal” that provides the company with three million liters of Iranian diesel, he appeared in the video, talking about the advantages of diesel that the company obtains at a price of “140,000 pounds per can, paid in Lebanese pounds.” These are the only two information that Nakad disclosed in the video signed by the name “Naseem”, while the “Al-Manar” channel affiliated with Hezbollah received what he said and published it with all the expressions of reverence for Hezbollah.
According to the report that Al-Manar was able to obtain alone, by breaching the walls of the company’s generators that cannot be entered without direct permission from its management, Iranian diesel contributes to reducing the hours of rationing that the company resorted to due to the scarcity of the substance in the Lebanese market. And that the initial quantity received by the company, according to sources’ estimates, amounted to 25,000 liters, rising successively to reach 100,000 liters per day.
Zahle funds Hezbollah
In his “exclusive” appearance through Hezbollah’s media, Nakad tried to appear as if he was presenting a joyful thing to the Zahlians in the city and the district, taking advantage of the widespread popular discontent caused by the power outage, to demonstrate his step as an exit from the state of rationing caused by the scarcity of diesel in the markets. Without making accurate calculations, if the company’s taxpayers are actually willing to finance Hezbollah and its activities from their own pockets, through the revenues of this diesel provided by their electricity subscription fees. Nakad concluded his “systematic” media appearance in accordance with the objectives of the owner of “fuel oil” with the phrase “Mersi” directed to the party, “for everything that has been done and will take place in the future.”
In the same tone of humiliation, words came out from the mayor of Ferzol, thanking Hezbollah for the same goal, in a video that also bore the signature of “Al-Naseem”. Nakad was sitting and speaking in the video, wearing a jacket bearing the logo of the Zahle Electricity Company, which Zahle has always expressed its pride in as a reflection of the city’s growth through the efforts of its people. This makes each Saturn consider his company and not the property of anyone.
There is no doubt that the Electricity Company of Zahle collided months ago by depriving it of the quantities of “subsidized” diesel it needs, so it began to sharpen it, according to Nakad. Perhaps Nakad used the phrase “sharpening” to mitigate the impact of his unilateral step by obtaining Iranian diesel. However, he ignored the impact of this step on the broad subscriber segment that falls within the scope of the Zahle Electricity Company’s service. It is a diverse segment in its affiliations, and a large part of it still believes in institutions and the duty of the state towards its citizens. Especially since the Electricity Company of Zahle is “private”, but it is of public interest. Therefore, it is the duty of the state alone to provide it with the quantities of diesel it needs at the official price. It follows the public accounting system and pricing of the Ministry of Economy, which was not clear if it was applicable after the company obtained Iranian diesel.
Popular grumbling and political silence
What is remarkable about the shock caused by the individual step of the Electricity Company of Zahle, is that the reactions that accompanied it were confined to the popular domain, as the door was opened wide for controversy. The move was met with deafening silence from the party leaders, especially the sovereign ones. Until Saturday evening, she did not issue any position, and some of them were satisfied with special contacts to decide the electoral step, considering that the paper of the aspirant’s wrath for the prosecution was burnt in her nominations.
Silence fell on the region’s deputies, with the exception of Representative Anwar Jumaa in his appearance as “B Al-Sabi” inside the campus of the company’s generators gathering, trying to invest the electoral step by saying: “This fuel is not for the company, and we are concerned with all of our people in all the judiciary.”
The “Zahle Rise Up” group had issued a statement before confirming the deal to purchase the Iranian diesel power company, Zahle Electricity Company, in which it warned of the danger of this step, which would affect the state in the state. Its statement confirmed that “the company is an institution bearing the name of the city that adheres to the state and its legitimate institutions, and does not deviate from the laws in force. While Iranian diesel was brought in for Hezbollah, in a manner that violates the principles, in a flagrant violation of the sovereignty of the Lebanese state, and in order to strengthen the authority of a party over legitimacy.”
It is also traded at the expense of the public treasury, in contrast to the principles of public accounting. And its imports are earned by Hezbollah. In other words, Zahle’s electricity subscribers finance Hezbollah’s activities from their pockets.
And Zahle’s statement concluded, “Is Zahle being recorded as having strengthened the state at the expense of the state? And for what? How much time does Hezbollah buy gasoline for, before the Zahle Electricity Company and its subscribers have to face lifting the inevitable subsidy, and what it means from the rise?” Inevitable for the cost of electricity service? And for what kind of mortgage?”
