Skip to comments.Hamas Rocket Strikes Gaza Electric Supply, Israel not Fixing It
Posted on 07/13/2014 2:41:56 PM PDT by Eleutheria5
Seventy thousand Gazans from Khan Younis and Deir el-Balah were in the dark Sunday night after a Hamas rocket hit the power line that supplies electricity to those places. It's not clear when Israel Electric Company workers will be able to repair the system, but they are apparently in no rush to do so. Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu has asked the IEC not to risk the lives of its employees in trying to restore power to the affected sector in Gaza, an operation that could take hours.
As Operation Protective Edge enters its seventh day, many Israelis are demanding that the country take more aggressive action against Hamas in order to put a halt to the seemingly endless missile attacks from Gaza. One suggestion that has come up numerous times including from MKs and Ministers like Deputy Defense Minister Danny Danon is cutting off electricity to Gaza,which Israel is still supplying. The Hamas missile, which hit one of the high tension wires that move power from Israel to Gaza, apparently made that a moot point, at least partially.
The Palestinian Authority currently owes the Israel Electric Company NIS 1.5 billion ($525 million) in unpaid bills for electricity. An examination of that debt by business daily Globes shows that the relative amount owed by Gaza was NIS 220 million ($62 million).

Those still living in the Dark Age can get to know it better.
Someone should post a photo of Steve Urkel saying “Did I do that” LOL Gaza..now that is karma!
Eff em. Why would Israel supply electricity to those monsters?
Arafats old group is probably loving the fact that Hamas is shooting itself in the foot since this began.
Let em sweat, who knows, maybe the stupid Muslim bastards will turn on each other. If history gives us any clues, that’s exactly what will happen.
I saw the headline and I thought "John Semmens is at it again." How can satire keep up with reality?
No, wait. It was the Jooos! who blew up the power plant. Who else?/s
The 6th century of Muhammad with no electric and running water suits them well.
Who needs electricity when you can roast your goat meat with faggots and dry camel dung?
Hamas will blame Israel and the Palestinians will lap it up.
“Arafats old group is probably loving the fact that Hamas is shooting itself in the foot since this began.”
Betcha $2 that in less than one week, this piece of reporting will become converted into “Israel targeted an important Gazan power plant in order to deprive hospitals of emergency facilities for the wounded it itself is causing, as well as schools and nurseries in order to further oppress Pali women and children”.
Oh great. Now American taxpayers will have to pay more tens of millions for these deadbeat parasites for their power.
I'm reminded of the end of Lawrence of Arabia when the "Arab Council" takes over the government and the British decline to keep the water and electricity running.
Here’s another group of refugees heading for a church near you.
Just fly the Palestinians to Honduras and they will come here.
Damn dirty apes. Expect me to live without white mans power is the last straw out of my pillow.
I was wondering as well. They’d be insane to rebuild that line, seems to me.
End all electricity, water, and other services to Gaza. Eliminate all financial aid to Gaza immediately.
This will encourage even more Palies to enter into Egypt. If Israel can encourage all 1.7 million to do so the better.
I love it! Could someone please post the photo of “Nelson’’ from The Simpsons , you all know the one. “”Ha Ha!’’
What no Obama Green Energy Money went their for the Solarification of Gaza? What is wrong with this Country! That wasn’t spreading the Wealth! What is their no SEIU Solar Installers their?
I called IEC, the only words I understood were something like...."When Hell freezes over".
Fix a facility under rocket attack? Not gonna do it, wouldn’t be prudent.
Electricity is harram. It,s a big Satan, little Satan plot to keep Gaza from its rightful return to the times of Mad Mo.
Thanks, LOVE IT!!!!!
