More on the Gaza power shortages

From the Ynet interview with Israel Electric Corporation (IEC) workers' committee chairman, Miko Zarfati:

"This is Palestinian spin. No one has stopped the supply of electricity to the Strip," Zarfati told Ynet.

The Gaza power plant only produces 30% of the electricity consumed in the Strip while Israel supplies the rest.

"The situation is totally absurd. We're continuing to supply them electricity despite the (demand) overload for electricity in Israel and despite the fact that Israeli residents and Electric Company workers that are being sent to Gaza Vicinity communities are under threat from Qassam rockets," Zarfati railed.
