Director of the International Red Cross office in Gaza, Yves Daccord, said on Wednesday that the Gaza Strip is on edge of collapse due to severe electricity crisis.

Warning that the Palestinian hospitals in Gaza are to stop offering healthcare services, he said: “Hospitals are to stop serving children, women and men, due to the lack of electricity.”

Currently, electricity is only four hours on in the Gaza Strip, because of policies imposed by Israel, Egypt and the Palestinian Authority, according to Days of Palestine.

Speaking to, Daccord called for urgent international efforts to afford electricity to the Gaza Strip, where the lack of electricity touched the life of all residents.

He warned the sewage and drinking and running water plants are directly affected by the severe lack of electricity in Gaza.

Daccord refused to blame any party for the electricity crisis in Gaza.
