Gaza Power Plant Goes Offline Due To Fuel Shortage
Palestinian officials told IMEMC on Tuesday that the lack of fuel has caused the only Power Plant in Gaza to go offline for the second time in two weeks; blackouts could reach up to 13 hours day in some areas of the Gaza Strip.
Ahamad Abu Al Amrien, the information officer of the Energy Authority in Gaza, told the IMEMC that the power plant was taken offline because fuel ran out. He added that the Authorities in Gaza are waiting on Egypt to send the need fuel into Gaza via the Rafah border terminal.
