Official: Gaza Hospitals at 20-Percent Capacity
Local Editor

The health ministry in Gaza says it is running on less than 20 percent of electricity, and the remaining amounts are enough for only another four days of power.

Ashraf al-Qidra, spokesman of the health ministry, said that around 70 ambulances will stop working if there is no fuel in the next few days, adding that 15 health service cars and 18 ambulances were already offline.

The ministry raised the alarm on Thursday, as concerned officials met to discuss the ongoing crisis of the coastal enclave.

According to sources, Palestinians in the Gaza Strip are suffering a crisis of dry petrol pumps and frequent blackouts.
Last month, Egypt began restricting the flow of fuel to Gaza through the network of smuggling tunnels running under their border.
Also, the Gaza Strip suffers fragile water and sanitation systems which are failing to function.

"These chronic shortages are reaching beyond the rationing of electricity and water for households which has been a feature over the past several years, to a situation where day-to-day life for Gazans is ever more difficult," Maxwell Gaylard, the UN humanitarian coordinator for the occupied Palestinian territory said in a statement on Thursday.
