Palestinians will now only have 1 – 2 hours of electricity every 48 hours!!! THEY NEED OUR HELP NOW Isarel has just destroyed the only Gaza power plant this is serious, and will effect millions of people. Israel knocked out Gaza’s only power plant, on Tuesday, with no end in sight to more than three weeks of conflict.Thick black smoke rose from blazing fuel tanks at the power station that supplies up to two-thirds of Gaza’s energy needs. The local energy authority said initial damage assessments suggested the plant could be out of action for a year.
Electricity was cut to the city of Gaza and many other parts of the Hamas-dominated territory after what officials said was Israeli tank shelling of the tanks containing some 3 million cubic litres of diesel fuel.
“The power plant is finished,” said its director, Mohammed al-Sharif. An Israeli military spokeswoman had no immediate comment and said she was checking the report.
Gaza City municipality said damage to the station could halt many of the area’s water pumps, and it urged residents to ration water consumption. Gazans who have had a few hours electricity a day since the conflict began now face months without power
