High Voltage Line to Northern Gaza Hit by Hamas Rocket

15 July 2014

High Voltage Line to Northern Gaza Hit by Hamas Rocket

Israel supplies 127 megawatts of electricity to the Gaza Strip on a daily basis through 10 transmission lines.

Sunday 13 July 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.
