Soon as possible at all no power in Gaza

Jerusalem (Reuters)-the Palestinian Authority (PA) refuses any longer to pay the energy bill to Israel for the stream that is delivered to Gaza. This makes the two million inhabitants of the region soon be possible completely without power.

The haggling over current supported between the PA and Hamas-run Gaza, which is already weeks. As a result, the people of Gaza had been suffering from a limited energy supply by about four to six hours per day.

Gaza is by a failure of the only power plant in the area five weeks ago entirely dependent on electricity from Israel. That country would, however, not directly do business with Gaza because it considers Hamas a terrorist organization.

A spokesman for Hamas in Gaza called the decision of the PA "a serious escalation and an act of madness."
