PA Approves Plan to Use Israeli Natural Gas in Gaza Power Plant

(November 2019)

The Palestinian Authority (PA) has approved a proposal to operate the Gaza Strip’s power plant using Israeli natural gas and Qatari funding. The project involves construction of a 25-mile-long gas pipeline with three pumping stations along the Strip’s eastern border and cost $88 million. It is expected to begin operation in early 2020.

Some critics objected to the plan on grounds the arrangement will reinforce Palestinian economic dependence on Israel.
