Hamas stole 45,000 liters of fuel at gunpoint today

Palestine Press reports:
head of the Palestinian Petrol Agency in Gaza Mujahid Salama said that elements of the Hamas movement looted today forty five thousand litres of fuel that were in the oil depots in the Nahal Oz crossing east of Gaza City.

He added in an interview with the Voice of Palestine radio this morning that "these elements forced the officials of the Petroleum Authority to provide this amount of fuel at gunpoint."

Salama added that this fuel was allocated to fuel stations in the Gaza.

He noted that fuel prices hit record numbers in the sector, which stopped most of the means of transportation except when cars and vans of the ministers and leaders of Hamas and the militias.
