Jaballah told press reporters that the runway’s lights were out of order due to periodic power cuts. His team asked the premier’s delegation not to take off and to wait until the the runway’s lights are repaired.
“They refused and decided to take off using on car headlights, even though this violates the rules and regulations,” he added.
