Gaza, Alray - An official at the Gaza power plant revealed about connections with Egypt, International organizations and PA in Ramallah to solve the fuel crisis to operate the power plant in the Gaza Strip.   

Ahmed Abu Al-Amrein, the Manager of Information Unit at the Gaza power plan, affirmed that Gaza's sole power plant will stops completely in case fuel crisis is not solved.

“In case the power plant stops, we will depend mainly on electricity come from Israel and Egypt, which means that citizens will enjoy electricity only six hours a day.” Said Abu Al-Amreen.

The  actual need of the Gaza Strip for electricity is about 300 megawatts. 120 megawatts come from the Israeli occupation, and 17 megawatt from Egypt; and the remaining is generated by the Palestinian Electricity Company.

The fuel crisis increased when the Egyptian authorities decided to establish the buffer zone on the Egyptian side of the border with the Gaza strip and destroyed all tunnels which were used to smuggle fuel to the Gaza Strip.
