Gaza faces prospect of powerless winter

Electricity cuts last up to eight hours a day as Gaza's only power station struggles to cope with demand.

    As winter approaches, Gaza's only power station is struggling to cope with demand. Citizens have been dealing with electricity cuts that last for up to eight hours a day.

    Most families depend on generators, though they are waiting for a crucial fuel shipment from Qatar in order to sustain them through the winter. Not everyone, however, can afford such a luxury.
