Gaza’s 1.5 million residents are struggling to cope without electricity and other basic necessities on the fourth day of an Israeli blockade.
Hospitals have begun to run short of fuel for generators, and sewage has spilled out onto the streets.

Gazans clash with Egyptian police at Rafah
Shots have been fired at the Rafah crossing where Palestinians have been demanding that the crossing into Egypt be opened to ease the blockade imposed on the territory by Israel.
Several police were injured in the skirmishes, as well as protesters.
Gaza has been under lockdown for five days now, although the blockade was eased earlier when Israel allowed a fuel shipment through.
