VIDEO: Gazans struggle to cope with cold winter

Published on Jan 8, 2013

Cooking and heating gas distribution stations in the blockaded Gaza Strip were forced to minimize their operation due to a shortage in propane gas. In past months, Israel has been allowing less than a hundred tons of gas in per day, while Gaza needs at least two hundred and fifty tons every day. The delay of delivery from Israel has led to the scarcity of cooking gas according to the Petroleum Importers Association.

The drop of gas shipments coincides with the winter and a rise in gas demand due to the shortage of electricity for space heaters. Gaza residents say they are expecting the worse as the temperatures continue to drop. We know that Israel aims to harm us with its blockade but their policies will never break us.”
