Al Qassam website (Agencies) - The Electricity Distribution Company in the Gaza Strip affirmed that the Israeli army is still preventing technical crews from entering the border area north of the Gaza Strip to repair the main power line.

The distribution Company stated in a press release on Tuesday that the line, which supplies very large areas in Gaza with about 12 MW coming from the Israeli company, was damaged at a border point about two weeks ago.

It also said that the occupation army has been preventing until now technical crews from entering the border area, East of Khan Younis, in order to repair the main line, which supplies almost half of the Khan Younis governorate.

The company warned of the continued loss of this amount of electricity, especially with the limited production by the power plant in the present circumstances, and stated that "such measures came to deepen the crisis and exacerbate its effects on over one million and seven hundred thousand Palestinian citizens in the Gaza Strip".

The company confirmed that this problem poses a serious risk to the electricity supply, which is already suffering a crisis, and directly affects the public humanitarian services as well as the humanitarian situation in the Strip.
