Citing preliminary survey reports, Youssef described the damage as "very extensive," including at least 600 phone lines and 12 phone booths, adding that repairs would be finalized by this coming Thursday. A survey team from Ogero arrived in Tripoli Friday and examined the damage in the warring neighborhoods of Jabal Mohsen and Bab al-Tabbaneh. Youssef, who held a meeting with Ogero officials and city leaders, also toured the two areas and said citizens should be able to apply for new phone lines and Internet services by the end of the week.
