Gaza, ALRAY - Qatar-donated diesel, used to fuel the Gaza Strip's sole power plant, is to run out on June 21, a source with knowledge Thursday told SAFA news agency.

The source pointed out that the closure Karm Abu Salem crossing, south-east of the Gaza Strip, negatively affects the amounts of fuel entered to Gaza.

The Israeli occupation closes the crossing under the pretext of the Jewish festivals and other reasons related to security, he added.

The Karm Abu Salem crossing is the only crossing through which goods, fuel, food commodities, and clothes enter the Gaza Strip.

The expected power crisis is to double the suffering of the Gazans as summer arrived to the region.

The Qatari donation helps operate two generators and make electricity available on the basis of eight hours on, eight hours off a day.
