Gaza power plant running out of fuel - but not because of Israel

Palestine Today reports that "the city of Gaza will sink into darkness within 72 hours" if no fuel is found to run the power plant.

The Energy Authority in Gaza sent out a distress call to the Arab and Muslim countries for urgent intervention to resolve the crisis.

Of course, they can get plenty of fuel - from Israel. It used to be that this was exactly where they received the heavy diesel to run the power plant. But about a year ago they started refusing to use that evil Zionist fuel and instead relied on receiving the fuel from Egypt.

It is nice to see that Hamas is so principled that it will happily make its own people miserable and put them in danger rather than accept fuel from the hated Zionist entity.
