Egypt transfers Qatari fuel for Gaza

Oct. 23, 2012 2:16 P.M. (Updated: Oct. 24, 2012 7:20 P.M.)
EL-ARISH, Egypt (Ma'an) -- Egyptian authorities on Tuesday delivered eight tankers of Qatari fuel to Israel to be transferred to the Gaza Strip, a PA official said.

Omar Hadhoud, PA representative at the al-Auja crossing, told Ma'an that Israel will transfer the fuel to Gaza via the Kerem Shalom crossing.

The 450,000 liters of diesel donated by Qatar was scheduled to be pumped in limited quantities to Gaza on Sunday, a Gaza official said this week, but Egypt delayed the delivery to improve security coordination.

Delivery of Qatari fuel began in July, but was cut off after a border attack on Egyptian officers on Aug. 5.
