Gaza power plant restart delayed over fuel

Published: 03.16.14, 19:34 / Israel News

GAZA CITY - Gaza's sole power station will not resume operations until Monday, despite Israel reopening the Kerem Shalom crossing to fuel deliveries, the deputy chief of the Gaza energy authority said on Sunday.


"We were expecting the delivery today (Sunday)
of 500,000 litres of fuel, but the delivery has been delayed, and only 100,000 litres have been delivered," he said. "We should receive 500,000 litres tomorrow."


A Palestinian official, speaking to AFP on condition of anonymity, said: "Problems in transferring funds between the Palestinian Authority in Ramallah and the Hamas government in Gaza are to blame" for the delay. (AFP)
