IEC Restores Power to Gaza Border Communities After Rocket Strike

Power lines to Israeli communities were also knocked out near Gaza. The IEC sent in workers to fix them.

Yesterday, a rocket launched from Gaza hit the high-tension power lines near Kissufim that brings electricity to Khan Younis and Dir Elbalach in Gaza.

An estimated 70,000 Gazans are without electricity, because of Hamas.

Prime Minister Netanyahu and the Israel Electric Company (IEC) made it clear they will not risk their workers lives to restore the electricity to Gaza. But once the shooting is over, the IEC plans to fix the power lines.

As it happens, rockets from Gaza also damaged power lines in Hof Ashkelon, and left some of the Israeli towns around the Gaza area also without electricity.

This afternoon, the IEC sent heavily protected workers to the area to restore power to the Israeli towns.

The IEC employees wore bomb vests and helmets as they quickly worked to restore power to Israel’s Gaza border communities.

They were protected by IDF troops.

  5. Hey! Hamas look! ! ! Israel fixed your electricity power line. Are you going to hit it again? come on! stop your foolishness and evil desire!

  6. Judith Ross says:

    I would not have done so until they paid their bills.

  7. Even when the power is restored, they figuratively choose to live in the dark. Residents of Gaza support Hamas. They are not victims, but co-conspirators.

  11. Wait a minute, why didn’t we just restore power for the Israeli’s ! Why in hell should Gaza have electricity ? Why !

  12. Ohev Israel says:

    The content of this post exposes the Israeli-Palestinian conflict as it is. It can surely help Israel in it’s efforts to disseminate abroad positive information about Israel, but I’m not quite sure it’s effective here. I have a great idea that can help us get the international recognition we deserve. If you are a good English speaker, and know how to represent Israel with pride and intelligence, please take a look at this page and it’s goals. Thanks! :-)

  13. Please stop being nice to them, Israel! You want them all out of there, right? If they knock out their own power, tough! Be tough on your enemies! They will leave. That would have to be good, I would think….

  14. Ruth Brackin says:

    Because Israel helps EVERYONE, no matter who they are. They take what G-d say seriously. We are to be our “neighbors” keeper.

  15. Exactly! I wouldn’t even warn them when you strike those particular sites, either. No warnings, no phone calls, etc. When you are done you are done. When the gloves come off, they are off. They never show Israel or the Jewish folks mercy.

  16. Please read article Israel did not fix electricity for Hamas only for the Jewish communities nearby.

    Must cut basic to make hamas pay instead of making millionaires…..
