Gaza official: Most of the Strip receiving 4 hours of electricity

After receiving six to eight hours of electricity a day during the Eid al-Adha holiday, most Gazans received four hours of electricity daily over the past week, Gaza Electric Distribution Company spokesman Muhammed Thabet said Tuesday (12th).

“Since the holiday, the amount of electricity available to the Gaza Strip’s residents dropped: 60% are receiving four hours and 40% are receiving six hours,” Thabet said in a phone interview.

However, Thabet stressed that there are no guarantees that the current levels of available electricity can be sustained.
