A bread crisis again?

The captain of the ovens owners, Ali Ibrahim, confirmed that “the scream resonated, but it is not permanent.”

He pointed out, in a radio interview, that “there are many obstacles regarding the provision of diesel fuel, and we took a quantity for one week, and it was necessary to secure diesel for at least a month, and they did not give us more.”

He said, “The fuel subsidy until the end of September, but the increase is missing for the owners of the ovens, and the water is more important than bread now.”
On the other hand, the bakeries, in turn, suffer from the shortage of diesel fuel, the material necessary to operate generators during rationing hours.
Although the Ministry of Energy has secured cards for it to obtain diesel fuel for the manufacture of bread, the production lines in the ovens are numerous and require more quantities of the substance.
