So far this year 31 residents of the Gaza Strip have died while using electricity generators, according to a report expected to be published in the coming days, Israel Radio reported Thursday.

Residents in Gaza are increasingly using generators as a source of electricity because of reoccurring power cuts in the area.

Thousands of Gazans have purchased electricity generators recently for domestic use, however many of the units are not safe and can be complicated to operate.
