Egypt Said To Ease Gaza Power Crisis With Emergency Fuel Supply

0

Egypt will provide hundreds of tons of fuel oil for the Gaza Strip’s only power station, a measure expected to ease the ongoing electricity crisis in the Palestinian enclave, local media reported Tuesday.

The Safa news agency, which is close to Hamas, citing an unnamed official, said that 500 tons of fuel a day will be trucked through the Rafah border crossing between Egypt and Gaza, enough to bring the power station back on-line.

Even at full capacity, however, the power station cannot supply all of Gaza’s electricity needs. Read more at Times of Israel.
