Israeli media reported on Friday morning that there was a massive power outage in large areas of occupied Palestine.

Iran PressMiddle East: Power outages were reported across Israel during the early hours of Friday morning.

The Israel Electric Corporation said the blackouts were caused by “a malfunction in power production units,” and that power would return to affected areas shortly.

The company’s website and telephone hotline also went down for a short time, possibly due to an overload as Israelis sought to find out what the problem was.

Some news sources have reported that the widespread power outage was caused by a cyberattack on Israel's electricity network. 

Palestine Al-Yawm news website reported that the power outage of this magnitude must have been caused by a very big accident.

Outages were reported shortly before 1 a.m. in Jerusalem, Ashdod, Herzliya, the Tel Aviv suburbs of Ramat Gan, Givatayim and Rishon Lezion, and other areas across the country, the Ynet news site reported. Traffic lights and street lights stopped working in some areas.
