Gazans are struggling in the wake of Israeli shelling and airstrikes that have reduced much of Gaza to rubble. Initial estimates suggest it could cost upto $6bn dollars to rebuild the tiny strip’s infrastructure after hundreds of factories were hit by Israeli shelling and airstrikes. These problems are made even worse after an attack on Gaza’s only power plant left homes and hospitals with just a few hours of access to electricity. Al Jazeera’s Charles Stratford reports from Gaza.
