As Israel’s total seal on Gaza borders, imposed on 11/5, continues, Gaza municipal officals shut down Gaza’s power plant for lack of fuel, cutting power to much of Gaza City. In the West Bank, the IDF conducts late-night house searches in and around Nablus but makes no arrests. The IDF also confiscates a Palestinian mobile home in Bayt Hanina in East Jerusalem; the IDF previously demolished 2 homes that the Palestinian owner had built on the site.
