Surreal: Photo of Electric Company employee fixing wires for Gaza
Despite the fact that it has now been more than seven years since Israel left Gaza, Israel continues to supply a significant portion of Gaza's electricity. No, the bills generally are not paid.
Sometimes, rockets fired from Gaza hit the electric wires and leave the poor 'Palestinians' without power. When that happens, believe it or not, the Israel Electric Company sends employees up to fix the wires. Yes, even while the shooting continues. After all, the Hamas rocket factories need to have power.
The picture at the top shows two Electric Company employees being raised to the level to repair wires. The employees are in steel cages to protect them from oncoming rockets. It's not clear to me what protects the drivers who pulled their trucks with the cranes on the back up to the spot.
What could go wrong?
