With Palestinian Debt Rising, Israeli Utility Briefly Reduces Power to West Bank


idf-gazaThe Israel Electric Corporation briefly reduced the power supply to two Palestinian districts in the northern West Bank on Monday because of a ballooning debt, according to company officials.

The Israeli power company decided to limit the supply to the districts of Nablus and Jenin for less than an hour on Monday given the PA’s debt, which is now at $490 million.

Over the last year, the company said, it has issued warnings and tried to find an arrangement to reduce the debt through contacts with the Israeli government and international bodies, to no avail.
