On-going attacks that would endanger the lives of electricity corporation technicians may postpone repair of the damage
Israel supplies 127 megawatts of electricity to the Gaza Strip on a daily basis through 10 transmission lines.
Yesterday (Sunday, 13 July 2014), a rocket fired by Hamas hit a high voltage power line in Israel that carries electricity to Gaza. Consequently, there were cut offs in the electricity supply to approximately 70,000 residents in Khan Younis and Deir al-Balah in the northern Gaza Strip.
Fixing the power line could be postponed due to the on-going rocket attacks on this area, which would endanger the lives of electricity corporation technicians working there.
