Walid Sayel, the board chairman of Gaza electricity generation station, has appealed to the international quartet committee topped by its envoy Tony Blair to find a drastic solution to the Gaza power crisis.

He asked the quartet to find the needed financing to provide the required fuel quantities to operate the full capacity of the Gaza station.

Sayel, who is also the executive director of the Palestine electricity company, proposed purchasing Egyptian gas to replace the Israeli industrial fuel, affirming that it would reduce operation costs other than being friendly to the environment.

He urged the UN, human rights groups and the world community to immediately intervene to pressure the European Union into refinancing the fuel supplies and to pressure Israel into allowing entry of basic materials into Gaza.

The electricity chief pointed out that Gaza power station was now producing only 30 megawatts, which meant a reduction of 50% in its power capacity.
