Kanan Obaid, the deputy director of the Gaza energy authority, has said that the Israeli occupation authority on Wednesday allowed entry of fuel into the Gaza Strip to operate the Gaza electricity generation station.

Obaid, in a press release, said that the IOA allowed entry of around one million liters of fuel to operate the station, which, he said, would be enough to run the facility for no more than three days.

The deputy director had warned in a press conference on Tuesday that the Gaza electricity station would close down by Wednesday evening because it was running out of fuel stock.

The IOA tightened the siege imposed on Gaza since last June and stopped supplying it with construction and industry material other than reducing quantity of goods, fuel and other consumer products.
