Gaza bakeries stop working due to lack of fuel, electricity
Owners of bakeries in Gaza Strip on Sunday announced that their bakeries had closed down due to the lack of fuel, gas and electricity that were blocked by Israeli occupation authority.
They told a press conference that their 50 bakeries in the Strip would stop functioning completely.
They called on all parties concerned to secure the necessary mechanism to ensure regular supplies of fuel to bakeries to guarantee continued service to the public.
One of those bakers called on all legal and human rights organizations and the world community at large to act and lift the siege on Gaza.
