Israel Electric Corp. Begins Repairing Power Grids for Gaza

Israel Electric Corp. Begins Repairing Power Grids for Gaza Residents

(Communicated by the Government Press Office)

On Tuesday 5 August 2014, Israel Electric Corporation (IEC) employees of the Be'er Sheva district, as instructed by the political echelon and authorized by the IDF, began working (near the border with the Gaza Strip) to repair the power grids that were damaged due to rockets fired from the Gaza Strip.

Repairing the lines that deliver electricity to Gaza requires very meticulous and complex work, under difficult working conditions. IDF soldiers are guarding the IEC employees with tanks and APCs.

IEC provides 120 megawatts of electricity to Gaza on 10 high voltage lines. Most of the power lines were damaged due to rocket fire.

IEC will continue to work on repairing the damaged lines on the Israeli side. There are also a number of damaged power lines within the Gaza Strip.

All IEC work is in full coordination with the Coordinator of Government Activities in the Territories (COGAT).

Ends.
