The 1.8 million people who reside in Gaza, experience some 20 electricity outages per day. According to reports on 16 April 2017, the Gaza Strip sole functioning power station ran out of fuel and stopped working. The Gaza power Generating Company plant usually operates only eight hours a day, after its fuel crosses into Gaza through the Israeli Kerem Shalom border crossing.
