One million children are suffering from “unlivable” conditions in the Gaza Strip. The besieged Palestinian territory, where more than two million people live, has also been suffering from an energy crisis since mid-April due to a dispute over taxes between Hamas, which rules the enclave and the occupied West Bank-based Palestinian Authority, the party of Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas. Gaza has also been under a tight Israeli blockade for a decade and residents have been subjected to persistent blackouts. According to the charity, more than 740 schools are struggling to function without electricity and most families receive only two to four hours of electricity each day.
