PLC member: Gaza power plant to shut down as fuel runs out

Nov. 28, 2008 5:42 P.M. (Updated: Nov. 28, 2008 5:42 P.M.)
Gaza - Ma'an - Gaza's power plant will shut down again Friday night after the area exhausts the limited fuel transferred in on Wednesday.

The blackout prediction was announced by the head of the Popular Committee Against the Siege on Gaza, Jamal Al-Khudari, at a press conference in Gaza City.

"The occupation wants to mislead the world into believing the Gaza siege has ended," he said. Al-Khudari also stressed that the brief opening of Gaza's borders and "the token supplies" allowed in did not amount to an end to the blockade, but rather allowed Israel to continue its actions while the world was appeased.

He described Gazan life as "paralyzed" and called on the international community and the Arab and Islamic world to put pressure on Israel to open Gaza's borders and stop the siege against its people.
