Israel to restore power to Gaza after Palestinian dispute

Israel to restore power to Gaza after Palestinian dispute

"It's an escalation that analysts say has the potential to destabilize an already fragile security situation in Gaza, the Palestinian enclave that Hamas has controlled for the past decade".

"Maqdisi, who hails from Gaza and is now an Isis preacher in Sinai, said in the footage: "[Hamas] uses its smuggled weapons to empower that which was not revealed by God.

Prior to last June, Israel provided Gaza with approximately 120 megawatts of electricity per day, or about one-third of the 400-500 megawatts that would be required to power Gaza around the clock.

Hamas has denounced the power cuts as collective punishment.

According to the US-based monitoring agency, Site, which keeps track of jihadi platforms, the 22-minute video shows a man, identified as Abu Kazem al-Maqdisi, urging Islamic followers to mount attacks on Hamas positions in Gaza.

A spokesman from Gaza's electric distribution company said work to switch the lost power back on started on Sunday and was due to be completed on Monday.

This announcement also sparked protests from Muslims all over the world where the USA government said that it was upending its foreign policy in the Middle East. Mahmoud Abbas, the leader of Palestine, has noted that the announcement by president Trump had disqualified the United States as a lead mediator in the peace process between Israel and Palestine.

Prompted partly by Abbas's sanctions and fears of financial and political isolation, Hamas signed an Egyptian-brokered reconciliation agreement with his Fatah movement in October and agreed to hand over administrative control of the Gaza Strip to the Western-backed PA. The Authority's decision to resume the electricity payments could help smooth the way towards completing the accord.

The new legislation is also likely to heighten even further the tensions sparked by Trump's declaration of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel on December 6.

He said neither U.S. President Donald Trump nor Israel's ruling Likud party "would be able to change the identity or the features of Jerusalem, which has always a Palestinian, Arab and Islamic face and identity". The peace team formed by Trump had held meetings for nearly a year with Arab leaders, Palestinian officials and their Israeli counterparts ahead of the expected peace deal. An Israeli military spokeswoman said it is investigating whether the teen was holding a firearm, a claim witnesses and medics deny.
