Israel Denies Electricity to Palestinians: Orders Removal of EU-funded Solar Cells

In-depth Report:

images_News_2013_03_16_panels_300_0AL-KHALIL (HEBRON):  The Israeli occupation authority (IOA) ordered the removal of solar cell panels providing a Palestinian community east of Yatta town in Al-Khalil with electric power.

Local sources reported that the occupation civil administration handed on Friday notices to the residents of Umm Al-Kharouba area near Yatta stating that the solar panels they use to generate electricity will be confiscated.

The solar energy system in this area was funded by the European Union several years ago and is used to supply 15 Palestinian homes with power.

Ratib Al-Jabour, the coordinator of popular and national committees in south of Al-Khalil, said that the notification was also glued on those panels.

He charged that the IOA step was meant to harass Bedouins and shepherds in the area and force them to abandon their lands in a prelude to confiscating those lands.
