Israel pledges to halt West Bank power cuts

Palestinian flags fly on a square in the new Palestinian city of Rawabi, just north of Ramallah in the West Bank, August 6, 2013Israel will stop cutting power to Palestinian cities over unpaid bills and will deduct funds from tax money to prevent the debt increasing, a government official said Thursday. The official also said Israel would connect water to a Palestinian city so that it can be inhabited, after a minister’s objection had been overruled. Israel has been withholding hundreds of millions of shekels in taxes it collects and transfers monthly to the Palestinian Authority since early January, following the Palestinian move to join the International Criminal Court. After repeat warnings, it again cut the power to two Palestinian cities in the northern West Bank for approximately an hour each time on Monday and again Wednesday.
