The Gaza Strip’s only functioning power plant has shut down after running out of fuel, leaving two million people in the Hamas-governed Palestinian territory with only six hours of electricity a day.

He said it was not clear when the territory would receive another shipment, owing to a “dispute” between the electricity authority in Gaza and Fatah-led Palestinian Authority (PA) in the West Bank.

Fuel supply for Gaza’s two million inhabitants has been a long-running source of dispute, with most homes in the territory receiving two eight-hour periods of electricity a day even when the power plant is operating normally.
