Gaza out of petrol


The power station in Gaza City shut down on Sunday due to a lack of fuel.

Xinhua reports that the plant needs 2 million litres of fuel a week – significantly more than the 1.5m that Hamas have quoted in the past, but far more significantly more than the 0.4m supplied on Thursday.

Israel and Egypt are still supplying 65% (not 75%, as in this article) of Gaza’s electricity needs.
