The governmental media office in Gaza condemned the Israeli reduction of electricity feed to the Gaza Strip by 8 megawatts out of the 120 megawatts Israel supplies to the Gaza Strip over power lines.
In a statement on Monday, the media office warned of the consequences of power supply reduction decision, deepening the current energy crisis, which was made upon request by the Palestinian Authority (PA) in Ramallah.
The statement held both Israeli and Palestinian authorities responsible for the consequences of such a serious move. Reducing power supply to Gaza is a crime against humanity, the media office highlighted.
The statement slammed the PA in Ramallah for giving up its duties stipulated in the Palestinian Basic Law and for its refusal to end the Palestinian internal division.
