The lack of gas and the absence of electricity for days on end forced residents in the Gaza Strip, which has been subjected to continuous bombing by the Israeli occupation for about 6 weeks, to resort to alternative solutions, including resorting to wood stoves and even burning clothes and books.
The occupation is not satisfied with bombing from the air, but rather besieges the densely populated Palestinian sector and prevents the access of even basic needs of water, food, and medicine, as well as energy sources such as gasoline, gas, and electricity.
According to a report by the Turkish Anatolia Agency, with the absence of all necessities of life in the Strip, which is inhabited by about 2.2 million people, aspects of primitive life began to spread among Gazans, as wood stoves became the source of energy necessary for cooking and making bread, and the source of heating.
In light of the scarcity of firewood in the affected sector, people are forced to use other alternatives, such as clothes and books, all of which have impacts on health and the environment.
Recently, video clips have spread showing Palestinians working on making primitive clay ovens for use in cooking food. This idea came to meet people’s needs in light of the fuel cuts and lack of cooking gas in the entire Gaza Strip.
For the 43rd day, the Israeli army is waging a devastating war on Gaza, leaving more than 12,000 martyrs, including 5,000 children and 3,300 women, as well as more than 30,000 injured, 75% of whom are children and women, according to the latest official Palestinian census, released on Friday evening.
