Palestinians protest energy crisis, lengthy power cuts in Gaza

Palestinians in Gaza protested for the third consecutive day Tuesday over power shortages in the Strip, which has recently been suffering from outages of up to 20 hours at a time.

Hundreds of Palestinians demonstrated in Rafah, Khan Yunis and in refugee camps in the central Strip, calling for a resolution to the energy crisis.

Gaza residents have been enduring electricity shortages for years, but the situation intensified last week when power lines from Egypt went down, with the Egyptians citing “technical problems.”

    Well, I guess if you can’t do your laundry or watch Aljazeera or the internet you might as well go cut down a few trees and start a bonfire in the street.

    Why don’t they ask Allah to give them electricity?

    Maybe if they spent money on underground power cables instead of underground terror tunnels this wouldn’t happen.
