Gaza electricity company warns of humanitarian disasters

GAZA, (PIC)– The Gaza electricity company has warned of humanitarian tragedies in the Gaza Strip in the event the Israeli occupation authority (IOA) continued to block entry of spare parts for its power network.

The company in a statement on Monday said that the company’s grid was suffering from worn out spare parts and is in dire need of new ones.

It said that the IOA blockade was leading the power grid in the Strip into total collapse, explaining that it was in need of rehabilitation and maintenance especially following the big destruction that affected it during the Israeli war on Gaza.

Any work stoppage would lead to negative and disastrous consequences on other services such as water, sewage, hospitals, children catering centers, and schools, the company highlighted.

The IOA has been blockading the Gaza Strip for the past three years and refuses to allow access for medical equipment and reconstruction material while allowing other necessities to trickle into the beleaguered Strip.
