Al-Khudari: Gaza will be plunged into total darkness within days

April 12, 2008 3:33 P.M. (Updated: April 12, 2008 3:33 P.M.)
Gaza - Ma'an - Jamal Al-Khudari Chairman of the Popular Committee against the blockade on the Gaza Strip on Saturday warned that a com pletepower cut in the Gaza Strip is imminent unless Israel allows fuel into the coastal strip.

At a press conference in the central Gaza Strip power station, Al-Khudari called for Palestinian, Arab and international efforts to pressure Israel to lift the embargo.

Al-Khudari said that unless that happens life in Gaza will be completely paralyzed, with the disruption of most services.This will cause devastation to health services, environmental damage and the disruption of communications.

Al-Khudari said the fuel shortage has led to the stoppage of water wells and this is threatening to destroy agricultural produce.

"We have come to tell the world that Gaza will collapse and this is the responsibility of the world. They must take immediate action to put pressure on the occupation to end this crisis," he told reporters.

He also called for the opening of the crossings into and out of the Gaza Strip and for goods to be allowed to enter especially confiscated goods being held at Israeli ports.

"Our people in Gaza insist on these demands and they don't want to turn into beggars living on aid. They want to live their life freely and depend on themselves without siege and aggression," he added.
