Alternative Information Center (AIC) – The winter storm that raged through the West Bank and Gaza Strip, from Thursday to Saturday, has left tens of thousands of Palestinian families without electricity. At least one death and some 100 injuries in the Gaza Strip have been attributed to the weather. Extensive loss of livestock has been reported, while an estimated 10-20 percent of greenhouses and agricultural fields in Gaza have sustained extensive damage.
