Egyptian authorities have approved the delivery of diesel fuel to the Gaza strip, Walla reports, citing Palestinian sources.
22 tanks with fuel intended to resume operation of the plant will be transferred to Gaza through the Rafah crossing. According to the Israeli newspaper «Haaretz,» Egypt will supply sector 500 thousand liters of fuel.
On 20 June it was reported that the energy crisis in Gaza is close to completion. The agreement to resume supplies was reached with the mediation of Muhammad Dahlan, supported by the Egyptian government.
In recent days, Israel, at the request of the Palestinian national administration, gradually reducing the supply of electricity to Gaza. PNA government is outraged that the money levied from the population sector for electricity, remain in the budget sector and not transferred to the PNA.
Previously the Electric company reported a decrease in the supply of electricity for another eight megawatts on two lines through which power is supplied from Israel to Gaza city and the areas to the North. In houses of inhabitants of the sector, electricity is only 2.5 hours a day.
