Israel Shuts Down Gaza Power Plant, Compounding Humanitarian Nightmare

leave a comment »

The only power plant providing electricity for the people in the besieged Gaza Strip has been knocked out of commission by an Israeli attack.

“Gaza’s sole power plant has stopped working due to Israeli shelling last night, which damaged the steam generator and later hit the fuel tanks which set them on fire,” Fathi al-Sheikh Khalil, the deputy director of the energy authority in the coastal enclave, said on Tuesday.

Huge fires were raging near the plant Tuesday morning, reports said. Fire department vehicles are reportedly still unable to reach the area.

The damage of the power plant worsens the heavy damage to infrastructure in Gaza inflicted during the 22 days of Israel’s deadly offensive in Gaza.
