Egypt again delays fuel delivery to Gaza

For the third time, Egypt has delayed a planned delivery of fuel from a Qatari ship to Gaza that has been promised for several months.

The fuel was expected to be transferred today to Israel to ship to Gaza via the pipeline at Kerem Shalom.

No specific reason was given for this further delay, just that it was for "technical reasons."

No new date for delivery was promised but there were vague mentions of Thursday or next Sunday.

For some reason, the world is not up in arms when Egypt drags its feet in helping Gaza.
