Palestinian Arabs deliberately cut electricity lines in the Dolev-Talmonim Bloc in Binyamin on Saturday, causing power outages throughout several communities over Shabbat. 

Power was finally restored since the early evening hours in Dolev, Talmon, Harsha, Neria, Horesh, Yaron, and Nahaliel. 

The terrorists uploaded footage of the attack on social media, confirming suspicions that the power cut was a deliberate assault on the Jewish communities in the region. 

The IDF has vowed to increase security in the area, and the Israel Electric Company (IEC) is working on restoring electricity to additional communities in the region still suffering from power outages.

The Israel Police has also launched an investigation into the incident.
