Israel threatens to cut off Gaza's water
The Age | September 5, 2007
ISRAEL'S Deputy Prime Minister has threatened to cut off water and power supplies to the besieged Gaza Strip after three Palestinian missiles exploded in the Israeli town of Sderot.
The homemade Kassam missiles exploded near schools and buses on Monday as thousands of children were about to start the second day of the new school year. No one was injured.
"It is inconceivable that we should continue to supply the residents of the Gaza Strip with electricity, water and fuel, while the citizens of Israel serve as live targets for their rocket fire," Deputy Prime Minister Haim Ramon said.
"We need to announce that for every rocket that is fired at Israel, we'll stop for a designated period of time, two to three hours, the supply of electricity, fuel and water to the Gaza Strip."
The Gaza Strip is already suffering from severe privation and economic collapse following Israel's decision in June to impose a near-total blockade on its 1.4 million people.
