PA daily cartoon: Israel killing Palestinians via power outages

The official PA daily published a cartoon showing a man with his hands tied and with a noose formed from an electrical wire hanging in front of him – an allusion to the Israeli Electric Company’s decision to cut power to towns in the West Bank because of the PA’s huge debts to the company.

Note: This cartoon complements a statement by Dr. Sabri Saidam, Deputy ‎Secretary of the Fatah Revolutionary ‎Council and PA Chairman Mahmoud Abbas’ advisor for communications and ‎information technology, that “by cutting power [to PA cities], Israel has decided to execute our nation.” [Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, March 2, 2015]
