Each household can expect only six hours of electricity at a time as territory's only power station closes down.

    The Gaza Strip's only power station has been shut down, cutting electricity in the area by almost two-thirds.

    The Palestinian enclave usually relies on fuel smuggled in from Egypt, but the power facility has run out. Gaza is under a sea and land blockade imposed by Israel, which prevents regular shipments of power to the area.

    Gaza's energy authorities say they will now only be able to give each household six hours of electricity at a time.
