Progressive Socialist Party leader Walid Jumblat on Tuesday launched a blistering verbal attack on the “owners” of both the country’s private power generators and the Turkish power ships as well as some officials at state-run Electricité Du Liban and the Environment Ministry.

“As the country drowns in floods, rivers of garbage, a polluted Litani River and darkness, the government is negotiating with the owners of generators instead of building a new power plant,” Jumblat tweeted.

“There is no difference between the owners of generators and the owners of the Turkish ships. Meanwhile, the thugs at EDL and the Environment Ministry are carrying out a purge and vengeance policy. Damn the hour in which they ascended to power. Thugs!” Jumblat added, in an apparent reference to the Free Patriotic Movement.
