Lack of fuel grounds Gaza's sole power plant

Published: 12.27.13, 12:01 / Israel News

Lack of fuel from Israel brought Gaza's lone power plant to a halt on Friday, just 12 days after it was fired back to life following a seven-week shutdown, the Palestinian territory's electricity firm said.


"The plant stopped working on Friday morning due to a lack of fuel caused by Israel's closure of the Kerem Shalom crossing," an electricity company official said. Israel closed the crossing to the besieged Palestinian territory on Tuesday following a series of violent incidents on the border with the Jewish state. Egypt also enforces the blockade on Gaza.
