Gaza, 22 Shawal 1436/7 August 2015 (MINA) – Qatari fuel has started to enter the Gaza Strip via the Karam Abu Salem Crossing on Tuesday, a Palestinian official said, as the besieged territory continues to face an energy crisis.

Crossings and Borders in the Palestinian Authority Nazmi Mohana said  that 190,000 litres of industrial fuel are due to enter the Gaza Strip, Mi’raj Islamic News Agency (MINA) quoted Ma’an News Agency as reporting.

He said that the obstacles that delayed the entry of the fuel were removed and it can now enter the Strip.

There will likely be more shipments next Sunday or Monday, he added.

The Gaza Strip, which receives its electricity from Israel, Egypt, and its one power plant, has been struggling to produce enough power for months.    (T/P011/RO6)
