Crack Halts Flow in Natural Gas Pipeline Used to Generate Half of Israel’s Electric Power

Israel’s supply of natural gas has been halted after a crack in the pipeline from the Tamar gas field was discovered, Globes reports.

The gas is used to generate more than half of Israel’s electric power.
Israel’s power stations have switched to more expensive and polluting diesel fuel to produce electricity, while the gas flow is expected to be restored on Wednesday.

  1. There is a fundamental problem with the Tamar gas field, in that it desecrates the Shabbos by operateing 24/7.
    It’s interesting to note that the crack in the pipe was discovered on the second day of Rosh Hashana, a day when Torah Jewry proclaims the Kingdom of Hashem.
