Gaza, ALRAY - Israeli occupation authorities are supposed Sunday morning to let Limited amounts of fuel to enter Gaza in order to run the only power plant in the enclave.

Head of the Coordination Committee for entry of goods in the Gaza Strip, Raed Fattouh, said that limited amounts of industrial diesel, petrol, diesel and cooking gas will enter Gaza via Karem Abu Salem crossing.

For his part, deputy director of the energy authority, Fathi Sheikh Khalil, said the entry of fuel to the power plant today will directly return the 8-hour program of electricity distribution.

The power plant has been shut down since Saturday due to a lack of fuel caused by (Israel's) closure of Karem Abu Salem crossing  last Wednesday.

The Gaza Strip has been under a severe economic blockade imposed by the Israeli occupation since 2006. The blockade has severely limited the imports and exports of the Gaza Strip and has led to frequent humanitarian crises and hardship for Gazans.
