The Ministry of Justice held a crucial discussion yesterday on connecting electricity infrastructure to the “young communities” of Judea and Samaria.
At the meeting, agreements were reached on the wording of the order that will allow Minister of Defense Benny Gantz to connect at least thirty localities and sections in Judea and Samaria.
Yesterday, Interior Minister Ayelet Shaked visited the young community of Avigayil. Shaked said that “the community of Avigayil is a community that I have personally accompanied for many, many years.” Authorizing electricity is “…the basic condition, and also to authorize the entire community and prevent Palestinian takeover in Area C.”
Residents in Area C having been needlessly waiting a long time to be connected to the basic service of electricity. We trust this development will be the start of a domino effect throughout the rest of Area C.
