Gaza power plant resumes with Qatar-donated fuel

Arguments between Hamas and Palestinian National Authority

10 October, 13:21

    GAZA - Gaza's power plant has resumed activity at maximum capacity on Wednesday, following a delivery of fuel donated by Qatar that came to Gaza from Israel on Tuesday, with help from the UN.
    Additional fuel is expected to arrive Wednesday and in the coming weeks.
    Local sources said Gaza residents have already seen a slight improvement in electricity provided to their homes on Wednesday, from four hours of electricity to six hours.
    Meanwhile, Hamas has gone back to accusing the Palestinian National Authority (PNA) of trying to block the fuel supply.
    "The government of Rami Hamdallah spares no efforts in suffocating the people of Gaza," said Fawzi Barhum, a Hamas spokesman.
    On Tuesday, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said he will support the efforts of UN envoy Nickolay Mladenov to reduce tensions between Gaza and Israel.
    The PNA fears that cooperation between Israel and Qatar is part of international plans aimed at widening the fracture between the West Bank and Gaza.
