Northern sector of Gaza electrical grid down; company desperate for repair equipment

Nov. 27, 2008 10:02 A.M. (Updated: Nov. 27, 2008 10:02 A.M.)
Gaza - Ma'an - The power grids in Gaza have begun to collapse as lapsed maintenance and repair efforts reach a critical stage. Some grids have ceased to function and others are in dangerous condition.

Head of Public Relations at an electricity company in Gaza Jamal Al-Dardasawi said on Thursday that the Israeli ban on maintenance equipment and spare grid parts was to blame for recent power outages.

Al-Darasawi explained that parts for the power station have not been able to enter Gaza for more than a year, and local supplies for repair are totally exhausted. Areas in the northern Bet Lahia sector will have no electricity until new switches and generators can be provided.
