"June 14, 2010 — Most people in Gaza have to rely on generators because electricity is unavailable for up to 12 hours everyday. The daily blackouts are largely due to Israel's blockade that impedes adequate supply of fuel to the power plants.
But many Gazans do not know how to use the generators properly and that often leads to fatal accidents. More than 100 people have died since last year.
The deaths have prompted Oxfam to launch an initiative to educate people on how to use the equipment.
