Gaza Strip, ALRAY - Gaza's only power plant is expected to shut down on Monday due to the depletion of fuel supplies as the Israeli aggression enters its fifth day.
The Palestinian Energy and Natural Resources Authority warned Saturday of a "humanitarian and environmental crisis" as the Israeli occupation continues to ban the entry of fuel shipments into the besieged Gaza Strip.
The Israeli occupation has been closing its crossings with Gaza, including the Beit Hanoun (Erez) crossing for individuals and the Karam Abu Salam commercial crossing, since it began its aggression against the blockaded enclave early Tuesday morning.
The energy authority called on the international community and human rights groups to urgently place pressure on the Israeli occupation to allow the entry of fuel shipments for Gaza's power station.
The Israeli occupation army has launched a violent offensive against the blockaded Gaza Strip, killing 33 Palestinians, including six children and three women, and injuring hundreds more, mostly civilians, in addition to bombing dozens of homes.
