Gaza returns to donkey days

 IPS 16 December 2019

The people of Gaza have returned to using donkeys on the roads following an ongoing fuel shortage that has hit all aspects of daily life hard, including garbage collection, waste disposal and other vital services. Rubbish fills the streets of Gaza City as there is no more money to fuel garbage trucks, and black smoke fills the air as residents burn the waste to try and get rid of it. Many families have no heat, light or cooking facilities as the main power plant in Gaza has also run out of fuel. (1102 Words) - By Mohammed Omer
