Gaza, Alray - The Director of Al Naser hospital for Children, Dr. Nabil Albrkony warned that lack of fuel and electricity cuts are hampering medical treatment in the hospital, explaining that lives of 32 premature babies and six babies in ICU are threatened.
"No hospital can work without electricity" he said, explaining that with eight hours electricity cut per day; the fuel store for the generator is going to be run out after six days. He aded that there is only 3000 liters of fuel in the store and the hospital spends 500 liters per day.

Medical treatment such as medical tests, x -ray and providing oxygen to patients all need electricity which is lacked due to fuel shortage.
