Eighty percent of the people in the Gaza Strip are forced to live in complete darkness. This information was provided by the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) in a recent study. The Red Cross said that they were forced to stay in the dark because of the extreme power crisis.
According to a report published in Xinhua on Monday, 80 percent of the total population of the Gaza Strip is forced to live in complete darkness for most of the day. The area has only eight hours of electricity a day, Xinhua quoted the Red Cross as saying.
