The Palestinian village of Jub a-Dib near Bethlehem has been around since 1929, yet Israel fails to hook it up to the power grid. In late 2016, thanks to international aid, 96 solar panels were installed providing the 160 residents with frequent electricity for the first time. Israel confiscated the panels on 28 June 2017. This is another example of Israel’s systematic abuse of Area C Palestinians, denying them basic services and confiscating or destroying options provided by aid organizations.
