Wearing bulletproof vests and helmets, Israel Electric technicians repaired a high-power line that was damaged by a Hamas rocket and restored power to some 70,000 Gazans. The Israeli government gave the green light to the Israel Electric Corporation to make the repairs even though its technicians were still in the line of fire.

IDF soldiers accompanied the IEC technicians for safety.

On Sunday night of this week, Hamas sent a barrage of rockets toward Israel. One of them hit an electricity infrastructure in Israel that supplied electricity to the Gaza Strip.
