The IDF Spokesman denied reports that a top intelligence unit located in the center of the country was forced to shutdown operations for thirty hours, after lightning struck its power supply. According to reports in the media on Tuesday, the severe weather conditions over the weekend, prevented personnel in the elite intelligence unit from compiling information and mapping objectives. The soldiers were forced to stop work until the power was restored, and some were sent to their homes as they were unable to operate equipment. The IDF Spokesman confirmed that while the lightening affected the power supply, an alternative power unit kicked in immediately, and the work continued uninterrupted
