The Palestinian government headed by premier Ismail Haneyya appealed to the international community to urgently intervene to pressure Israel to reopen the commercial crossings and allow in fuel supplies.

In a press statement received by the PIC, Taher Al-Nunu, the spokesman for the government, warned that the majority of fuel supplies used for cooking and electricity generation ran out.

Nunu pointed out that the Khan Younis district has been suffering from power outages since Sunday because Israel refuses to repair the faults in the main line which feeds the district, adding that Israel also prevents the entry of spare parts in order to maintain the only power station in Gaza.

In a press release received by the PIC, Hamas spokesman Fawzi Barhoum stated that the goal of the Israeli occupation from the closure of crossings and tightening the screw on the Gaza people in addition to the continued aggression on them is to blackmail the Palestinian resistance factions and to force them to extend the truce without anything in return.

For his part, Dr. Salah Al-Bardawil, a member of the Hamas parliamentary bloc, strongly denounced the Israeli closure of Gaza commercial crossings, considering it part of the regional and international pressures which are aimed to weaken Hamas and force it to accept the Israeli conditions.

PA minister of information in Ramallah Riyadh Al-Maliki blatantly told a news conference on Monday that Israel does not have to allow in fuel supplies to Gaza because the fuel smuggled through tunnels from the Egyptian side is sufficient for it.
