Sunday, July 9, the coordinator of government activities in Judea and Samaria, major General Yoav Mordechai in his blog on Facebook, which is conducted in Arabic, spoke about the machinations of Hamas with diesel fuel coming into Gaza for the power plant.
As an example, Yoav Mordechai tells about the batch of diesel fuel that entered the Gaza strip over the last 18 days. He writes that the Gaza power plant has acquired 7 million liters of diesel fuel for 3 shekels per liter. But only 65% of the volume of gas received at the plant. About 2.64 million liters (that’s 32.5 per cent) were confiscated by Hamas and sold at speculative prices.
According to the coordinator, Hamas «earned» 10.8 million shekels, not returning to power plants the cost of fuel.
The report also notes that Hamas has sold diesel fuel to individuals at a price of 4.37 NIS per liter, which is almost shekel below the market price. This was done in order to demonstrate to Gazans that Hamas cares about their well-being.
