Gaza fuel update

Last week, a total shutdown of Gaza's main power station was averted at the last minute by the PA agreeing to pay for the fuel, after the EU decided not to pay for Gaza fuel any more.

That fuel supply has run out, but today Israel is sending industrial fuel through the Kerem Shalom crossing. It is unclear who is paying for it.

PCHR, in an investigation, notes that the company that owns the power plant - one third owned by an American company - is making lots of money.
