Minister seeks halt to Gaza gas supply over local shortage fears

Speaking ahead of the cabinet vote on preparations for summer power shortages, Minister Gilad Erdan asked ministers to support his proposal according to which any initiated power shortage in Israel would mean that Israel halts the power supply to Gaza.


In a communiqué sent to the ministers Erdan said: "This isn't a sanction against Gaza or against its residents, rather it is a basic move that is demanded when fully recognizing the truth of 'the needy of your city come before those of another.'" (Attila Somfalvi)
