Gaza19June6BETHLEHEM (PNIC):- Israel started to reduce electricity supplies to the besieged Gaza Strip on Monday, despite being urged by humanitarian organizations not to implement the decision, which came at the request of the Palestinian Authority (PA).

Gaza's electricity company, the Gaza Electricity Distribution Corporation, said in a statement Monday that the Israeli grids supplying the Gaza Strip reduced their output from 120 to 112 megawatts.
The statement explained that the reduction affected two grids -- one known as the Baghdad Line that feeds the Gaza City district and Grid 11 that feeds Khan Yunis in southern Gaza -- which had previously produced a combined 24 megawatts of power, and were now producing just 16 megawatts.
Electricity company spokesman Muhammad Thabet said the reduction meant power would be provided for only two to three hours a day.
