Shaul Goldstein, CEO of Noga – Israel Independent System Operator, warned that Israel could face severe electricity shortages in a war with Lebanon.

As an “energy island,” Israel’s self-sufficiency is crucial, but a missile strike could cause prolonged outages, crippling communication and infrastructure.

Goldstein emphasized that life in Israel would become unsustainable after 72 hours without power. He described a scenario where inspectors, unable to communicate or access fuel, would face chaos.

Despite ongoing investments to fortify the grid, Goldstein pointed out the ease with which Hezbollah could target Israel’s critical infrastructure. “We are not ready for a real war,” he stated, underscoring the need for greater preparedness and Israeli ingenuity.
