Israel cuts power to Nablus, Jenin for 2nd time this week

Feb. 25, 2015 5:45 P.M. (Updated: Feb. 27, 2015 7:59 P.M.)
NABLUS (Ma'an) -- The Israel Electric Corporation notified the Palestinian Northern West Bank electricity company that it would briefly disconnect the grids which supply the cities of Nablus and Jenin for an hour on Wednesday.

Head of NEDCO, Youssef al-Qaram, said that the company had no outstanding debts and was unsure why Israeli authorities took the decision to cut power to two major Palestinian cities from 2:00 p.m. until 3:00 p.m.

It is the second time this week that Israel has cut the power supply to the major northern Palestinian cities. On Monday, the Israel Electric Corporation disconnected the grids to Nablus and Jenin for 45 minutes.

Ghassan al-Shakaa, chairman of the board of directors of the Northern West Bank Electricity company, said that the Israeli company disconnected the grids as a penal procedure for unpaid bills, despite there being no accumulated debts.
