BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- Palestine Power Generation Company has signed a 20-year-deal with Israeli and American natural gas companies, the Palestinian Authority's minister of energy said.

Omar Kittaneh said that a power plant would be built in the West Bank on land designated by the Palestinian cabinet, and that bids for the project are now open.

Partners in Israel's Leviathan natural gas field signed a $1.2 billion deal with PPGC, Reuters reported.

According to the Reuters report, PPGC plans to build a $300 million power plant in Jenin that will be operated by the gas from the deal.

The Leviathan natural gas field is located in the Mediterranean Sea west of Haifa.

Good. Another step closer to peace and prosperity for the Palestinians.

It's sad to see that Palestinians have signed a deal with Israel (the illegal occupiers) before peace agreement has been signed. What signal does it give to the illegal occupiers? There are plenty of arab states who will be more than happy to provide gas at competitive price. Perhaps Palestinian leadership should think again regarding this deal?

Perhaps, #2, you are not as keen as you think. There is no way for the Palestinians to get gas from Arab states, unless a pipeline is built from the Gulf through Jordan. How long would that last before Jihadists blow it up? The safest and most secure supply, and probably at competitive prices, will be from Israel. It is sad to see war mongers like you trying to send Palestinians and others to their deaths. You want war, we want peace.

Ma'an? You are censoring readers comments again! Think national not factional!Think Palestine not just West Bank! Don't let Israel separate the left(factional)hemisphere of your brain from the right.The UNITED brain(PALESTINE)is the MAIN topic! Palestinian resources belong to ALL 10 MILLION Palestinians(W/B,Gaza,E/Jerusalem,Diaspora),not an Israeli-proxy FACTION! That's not a'deal',that's MORE divide&rule!

Peaceful co-existence is doing business together. So anyone who objects to deal such as the one described is simply for war.

Hey Mel...why don't you explain to us how American resources were snatched up by you white people when they really belong to the 3 million remaining native Americans, not you 306 million invading settler land-grabbers. Talk about "divide and rule" - that's what you do. Hard to deny since you whities clearly massacred the Indians and stole their lands. Live with the truth, Mel. You should be fighting to liberate America from your occupation.

#6:"Peaceful coexistence"?Rafi,you make the assumption that Zionist leaders invading Palestine(&Israel)want peace,by peace.Reality shows otherwise & documented journals/diaries by extremist-Zionists(like Ben Gruen &his 'Red House' thugs)are proof too,on record,unilateral'peace' by oppression & doing exactly what'Purists'did centuries ago in N&SAmericas,Africa,Australasia,India etc.Occupation,wipe out nativepeoples by murder or poverty,starvation,attrition&'transfer'.This is ZIONISM's METHOD too!

#7 lol at Brian Cohen referring to Mel as "you white people" when there is a 99.9% chance that Mr. Brian Cohen, Pro-ethnic cleanser of native Arabs, is of white European ancestry.

Now now..lets let the heat cool down...everybody's both right and wrong in their own minds...their perception is the reality as they see it....now ..this is what should happen...Jordan ..is Palestine..all 10 million Palestinians can live there..Israeli Arabs can stay...the new Palestine has to have no army..no offensive weapons..all the money the world wastes on camps and relief..goes to the new Palestine..also Israel can pitch in....there I solved the whole problem....simple but effective......

To Brian # 3. You Zionists are new Nazis. You just want to occupy the Palestinian land, kill more of them and make the rest of them refugees. Israel is a fascist and racist state run by the worst war criminals. I feel sorry for the innocent Palestinians and Jews who are paying a heavy price for the extremist Zionists and theirs atrocities against the Palestinians and Jews who would live in peace.
