Hamas priorities

From Ma'an:
The Palestinian health ministry of the Ramallah-based caretaker government said on Thursday that "Hamas militias" have looted the fuel stores destined for hospital vehicles in the Gaza Strip.

A statement released by the health ministry said that fuel from the European hospital in the Gaza Strip had been stolen by the director of the hospital drivers to supply the Hamas-affiliated Executive Force.

The statement explained that the fuel reserve had been supplied by the ministry to enable the hospital to continue working for as long as possible.
While it is possible that the PA is lying, this seems to have a certain air of authenticity. Hamas loves seeing dead PalArabs that they can blame on Israel, so taking away hospital fuel is quite consistent with how they have acted in the past.
