Gaza (In Palestine Today)- A new study by the International Committee of the Red Cross in Gaza revealed that 80% of the people in Gaza live with only 10-12 hours of electricity on a daily basis.
The study said that the chronic and prolonged electricity shortages and power cuts are taking a psychological toll on people, with 94% of Gazans surveyed reporting that their mental health is affected by the situation.
The study also noted that the recent Israeli strikes on the besieged enclave left its people with massive shortages of supply. The daily power supply has become only 4-5 hours.
“While some can afford additional electricity supply through generators at least 500,000 people cannot afford additional power, so they are forced to spend most of their day without electricity.”
