The weeks-long crisis is inflaming political tensions between Hamas and the Fatah-led Palestinian Authority.
Leaders of the rival factions are trading accusations over the shortage, accusing each other of negligence- "The Palestinian people are subjected to a conspiracy to break the will of the people," Hamas leader Khalil Haya told CNN.
An Israeli fuel shipment into Gaza on Friday temporarily eased the shortage. But the power plant shut down Sunday after that 450,000-liter supply ran out, Ma'an reported.
