Israeli Occupation refuses to allow village to have electricity generator repaired
JENIN — The village of Dhahr al Maleh, to the south of Jenin located behind the Apartheid Wall, has been living for ten days in total darkness after the disruption of the electrical generator, which supplies the energy to the village and which the occupation authorities refuse to allow to be repaired.
Hussein al Abd, a member in the Village of Dhahr al Maleh Council, confirmed in a press statement that the electric generator of the village had been disrupted and that due to the location of the village (behind the wall apartheid), the council was unable repair it because of the Zionist obstacles.
He noted that the village, which has a population of 300 people, has been using the electrical generator since 1995 and that it had received a new generator six months ago, that has stopped working ten days ago. He also pointed out the increase of power consumption during the summer especially as the month of Ramadan is approaching.
The Village Council’s member called for pressuring the occupation authorities to speed up the repair of the generator; noting that the occupation authorities have been refusing to approve a solution that lies in linking the power grid to a point located at a distance of only 100 meters from the village.
