Gaza crippled by electricity crisis as power plant runs out of fuel

( CNN) Gaza’s merely power plant has run out of fuel, leaving two million residents of the coastal enclave with only four hours of energy a day in what the UN carefulness could be the tipping point to stirring Gaza “unlivable.”

The Palestinian Authority in the West Bank and Hamas in Gaza blame one another for the energy shortage.

The power generating authority in Gaza replies it cannot afford to buy more fuel for the plant — mostly because of taxes imposed by the Palestinian Authority. The Palestinian Authority claims that the Hamas officials in Gaza are simply incapable of running the plant efficiently.
