Jan. 29, 2016 2:32 P.M. (Updated: Jan. 29, 2016 4:00 P.M.)
GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- A Palestinian man was killed and his wife suffered excessive smoke inhalation on Friday after they lit a coal fire in their home to keep warm amid frigid weather in Jabaliya in the northern Gaza Strip.

Medical sources identified the couple as Jamal Abdullah, 48, and Ruba Abed Rabbu, 45.

A spokesperson of the Gaza Ministry of Health, Ashraf al-Qidra, told Ma'an that the woman was taken to the Indonesian Hospital for treatment in critical condition.

In addition to poor weather conditions, the Gaza Strip has been suffering serious power shortages, and Palestinians in Gaza have regularly been provided with no more than five hours of electricity a day.
