Cut Gaza Power Supply To Boost Israel Grid: Minister [View all]

AFP Sun, May 13, 2012

Israel should consider cutting its supply of electricity to the Gaza Strip this summer if it experiences power shortages, Israeli Environment Minister Gilad Erdan said.

Erdan, a member of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's right-wing Likud party, outlined the proposal in a letter to ministers, who were scheduled to discuss the issue in their Sunday cabinet meeting.

"If there are power shortages in Israel this summer, the supply of electricity to the Gaza Strip should be halted... It represents 4.5 percent of Israeli production," the letter said.

"Electricity production will be less than demand this summer," Erdan added, in an interview with Israeli military radio on Sunday.
