Fuel for emergency generators that keep Gaza's hospitals and sanitation services operating will run out within 10 days, the United Nations said Tuesday in an appeal for immediate donor support.With Gaza's electrical grid supplying only about four to six hours of power a day to Gaza's 2 million people – a complicated crisis also largely rooted in the Hamas-PA rivalry – backup generators are a lifeline for health care and sanitation facilities.At Durra Hospital for Children in Gaza City, which normally treats up to 180 patients a day, many of its 90 beds were empty Tuesday.
