One Year Later, Egypt Still Won’t Send Electricity to Gaza

Palestine Today reports that electricity from Israel is no longer being set to Gaza (without mentioning that it was Hamas and Islamic Jihad rocket fire that caused the lines to go down to begin with).

The article also mentions that the “Egyptian lines are still idle.”

It has been nearly a year since Egypt sent electricity to Gaza. While their contribution was modest, right now it would have been very useful to have that extra 16 megawatts.

I’m not certain if Egypt’s lines are off because of damage that no one is bothering to fix or because no one is paying Egypt for the electricity. Either way, no one is pressuring Egypt to resume its supply of power.
