An Israeli electricity company, Thursday, threatened to cut off supplies to the West Bank over unpaid debts, and said that it would also cut off electricity to the West Bank and Jerusalem completely, starting on Sunday, 23 February.
Chairman of the company, Yiftach Ron-Tal, sent a letter to the Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu demanding the Israeli government to collect the debts from the Palestinian Authority (PA) or allow him to cut off supplies to the West Bank, according to the Palestinian News Network (PNN).

Ron-Tal said that he will file a lawsuit against Israel to exert pressure on the government, in order to help his company collect unpaid bills from the PA, which reached up to 1.3 billion shekels.
