The Palestinian Energy Authority revealed, in a statement issued Thursday, that Israeli authorities’ reduction of its electricity supplies to the Gaza Strip has reached 55 MGW.
The cutback would deepen the Palestinian people’s suffering in the Gaza Strip especially in light of the very hot wave that hits the region, the statement reads.
The current total production capacity of the Gaza’s sole electricity generation station is only 140 MGW which could not cover the Strip’s daily consumption in summer, according to the statement.
The Authority appealed for urgent action at national and international level to put an end to Gaza’s power crisis.
