June 30, 2014 11:33 A.M. (Updated: June 30, 2014 11:33 A.M.)
RAMALLAH (Ma'an) -- Officials at the Gaza Strip power plant announced Monday that they are no longer able to provide electricity for eight hours per day.

The company said in a statement that it was “doing its utmost” to provide power for water wells, sewage plants, hospitals and medical centers to prevent any humanitarian or environmental disaster.

The statement called upon all concerned parties to increase the available amount of electricity.

The company recommended people not to increase their consumption of electricity, especially in the hot weather, and to avoid turning on air conditioning in public and private facilities and mosques.
