A Qatari technical delegation held talks in Israel and the Gaza Strip this week about helping pay for a proposed new power line between them, officials on both sides said Tuesday, marking a potential expansion of Doha's aid efforts for Palestinians.Spearheading the Qatari drive has been envoy Mohammad al-Emadi, who Palestinian officials said this week brought $10 million to Gaza, via Israel, to disburse to the poor.The new line, known as Line 161, would provide 100 megawatts to Gaza, which currently gets a total of 120 MW from Israel, short of the 500-600 MW that Palestinians say the blockaded enclave needs.
