A lack of fuel has reduced the operations of the Gaza Strip’s only power plant. Electricity in some areas is out for up to 16 hours at a stretch.
Nov. 12, 2013 Palestinian students light candles to study during a protest against power cuts in Gaza City. A shortage of fuel halted the production of electricity across the Gaza Strip on Nov. 8. The energy authority of the Islamist movement Hamas has blamed the power outage on Egypt's destruction of tunnels used for bringing fuel to Gaza and accused the Western-backed Palestinian Authority of charging Hamas too much for its fuel.
