On Saturday, Coordinator of Government Activities in the Territories Major-General Yoav Mordechai accused Hamas of stealing electricity intended for Gazan schools and hospitals in a Facebook post, which was accompanied by footage of the theft
Yesterday, it was reported by Major-General Yoav Mordechai, the Coordinator of Government Activities in the Territories (COGAT), that Hamas members reached the border of the Gaza Strip to steal electricity that was supposed to reach civilian facilities in Gaza.
According to Mordechai, Hamas continues to steal from the Gaza residents. The Gaza Strip has seen a rise in the humanitarian crisis since June when the Palestinian Authority decided to stop paying Gaza’s electricity bill.
The Hamas terrorists were caught on tape around 4:30 pm on Saturday hijacking the power line. “The electricity line runs into the Gaza Strip and the hijacking took place in the area between Maghazi and Khan Yunis,” Mordechai added. “This is electricity intended for hospitals and schools, but Hamas is not interested in the population and even oppresses it.”
