Once again, the sole power station in Gaza has shut down, plunging the enclave into darkness 18 out of 24 hours a day.

Gaza Electricity Distribution Company media director Mohamed Thabet said he didn’t know why the power plant was closed.


Thabet was quoted by the SAFA news agency as saying the Gaza Energy Authority “had not informed them of the reason for the closure of the power plant,” which took place last week.

Nine of the 10 power lines bringing electricity into Gaza from Israel are so far still supplying the enclave, although the tenth was damaged several days ago due to Hamas terror attacks. Egyptian power lines have already been off-line for a week.

Thabet said Gazans will receive around four hours of electricity a day, or as close to that allocation as possible.
