GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- Three Israeli power lines that provide the Gaza Strip with electricity were damaged Monday, the director of public relations in Gaza’s power plant said.
Jamal al-Dardasawi told Ma'an that the power schedule went down from six hours to four hours after three Israeli power lines were damaged; two of them were broken from the Israeli side.
Al-Dardasawi added that repairing these lines depends on the approval of an Israeli company.
He added that the company was working with the power authority and specialized parties to repair the lines.
Al-Dardasawi said that an Egyptian company that provides electricity to Rafah will work on repairing the lines from inside Egypt from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. Tuesday, which will cause a blackout in Rafah during this period.
