Electricity supply in the Gaza Strip depend on three main sources:

1 – From Israel (northern Gaza)
2 – From the Gaza Power Generating Company – GPGC (Gaza City and the central region)
3 – From Egypt to Rafah in the south area.

It is from these sources that the Gaza Strip can function in humble circumstances.

The comprehensive siege on Gaza since 2007 changed the status quo to the contrary. Restrictions on the supply of electricity to Gaza were carried out in a planned manner by the Zionists by preventing the entry of fuel into this besieged territory.

1-Darkness or ‘black-out’ is not an unusual thing in Gaza. It has become the norm for people here to have darkness or black-outs for 18 hours in each day.

2-Cold temperatures approaching freezing in winter result in the population of Gaza being exposed to various types of illness and death especially among children, the elderly and patients.

3-The absence of electricity in the summer since the year 2007 means they have to weather the hardships in Gaza until 45 degrees Celsius without cooling devices such as electric fans or air conditioners.

4-Restrictions of electricity supply hospitals cause cancellations of various treatments and surgical operations, and results in the intensive care units inability to function proportionately.

5-The supply of drinking water which depends on electricity is also severely limited as a result of these restrictions. Food is unable to be stored for long periods since cooling devices are unable to function without electricity.

6-Productivity of food from the food industry and factories has collapsed resulting in increasing prices of basic food like bread and others.

7-Office administration, schools, universities and various other institutions are also often disrupted and adversely affected by these prolonged electricity restrictions on the Gaza Strip.

In your opinion, what is the solution to such a great humanitarian crisis as this?
