The United States on Thursday urged Israel not to exacerbate the humanitarian situation in the Gaza Strip, where Israel has scaled down its energy supply as it pursues rocket launchers in the territory.

“I am sure we will continue to convey that position to them.”
Israel on Thursday began reducing by the electricity it supplies to Gaza via high-tension power lines. “The Israeli electricity company on Thursday evening reduced by about 1% the electricity supplied by high tension line to the Gaza Strip,” Defense Ministry spokesman Shlomo Dror said.
Speaking in Israel, Defense Minister Ehud Barak vowed that “if the rocket fire from Gaza continues, we will intensify our operations and strikes against the other side, until a solution is found.”
