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.
