Head of the popular anti-siege committee, MP Jamal al-Khudari, raised on Monday alarm bells over the tragic fallouts of an Israeli decision to reduce power supplies to the blockaded Gaza Strip.
According to al-Khudari, over the past couple of months, Gaza’s sole power plant has gone out of operation due to the acute shortage in fuel supplies, resulting in a dire humanitarian situation.
The MP warned that the situation is taking a turn for the worse due to Israel’s decision to curtail power supplies to the besieged coastal enclave.
Al-Khudari urged the international community and all concerned bodies to immediately step in so as to push Israel to backtrack on its decision on the one hand and to provide much-needed alternative power sources, fuel supplies, and solar power generators to operate hospitals, clinics, and water wells, among other vital facilities on the other hand.
