Gaza Power Station Shut Down For Fuel Shortage
The Gaza Strip's only power station, which supplies the Palestinian coastal region with up to two-thirds of its energy was shut down on Tuesday because of a shortage of fuel from Egypt.
The shortage led to widespread blackouts for nearly 1.5 million Palestinians who live in Gaza. The local power company warned that households would receive only six hours of electricity a day until the problem was resolved.
