Hamas turned off the last turbine of the Gaza power plant

Authorities in the Gaza strip of the Hamas terrorist organization announced to stop the last operating turbine sector due to lack of fuel.

High-voltage lines from Egypt currently is also disabled.

Thus, the only source of electricity in Gaza left a high-voltage line from Israel, where the sector delivered 70 megawatt-hours per day.

Recall that in recent weeks the supply of fuel to the Gaza strip took over Egypt, and paid for delivery to United Arab Emirates.

The Gaza strip receives electricity from three sources. Power sector began its work in 2002 and by 2006 had developed a 90 megawatt-hours per day. After the abduction by Hamas of Gilad Shalit in June 2006 the Israeli air force struck the Gaza power plant, causing significant damage. After repair, the production of plants was reduced to 60 megawatt-hours per day, her work is dependent on the supply of oil and diesel fuel. In April 2017, the plant ceased operations in connection with tensions between the leadership of the Palestinian authority and Hamas on the question of payment for fuel.

June 20 this year, the media has reported that Egypt has agreed to supply to power sector diesel fuel, paid the United Arab Emirates.

Also the Gaza strip have received until recently, electricity from Egypt (28 megawatts-hours a day) and Israel (123 megawatt-hours). Electricity Israel charged a fee from the taxes collected by Israel for the PNA. However, in June of this year, at the request of the leadership of the Palestinian authority, Israel has reduced the volume of supplies up to 70 megawatt-hours per day.
