Schools and universities in Gaza closed for third day due to fuel cuts

April 19, 2008 12:37 P.M. (Updated: April 19, 2008 12:37 P.M.)
Gaza - Ma'an - Schools and universities in the Gaza Strip suspended classes for the third consecutive day on Saturday due to a paralyzing fuel shortage, education officials said.

The suspension of classes was announced earlier this week after a lack of transportation sent absentee rates soaring. Israel has virtually cut the Gaza Strip off from fuel supplies, shutting down ground transportation. Without fuel for cars, busses, and taxis, students and educators have been simply unable to get to class.

The spring final examinations have also been postponed until further notice.
