250,000 liters of fuel to be sent to Gaza

June 24, 2014 11:53 P.M. (Updated: June 25, 2014 7:08 P.M.)
GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- An agreement has been reached to import 250,000 liters of synthetic diesel for the Gaza power generation station, the deputy head of the energy authority in Gaza said Tuesday.

Fathi al-Sheikh Khalil told Ma’an that the fuel, to be delivered Wednesday, aims to continue the supply of electricity for eight hours daily.

He added that this amount is enough for one day, explaining that there are other suggestions to reduce the taxes on diesel in place.

Khalil had earlier said that donated Qatari fuel would run out on Tuesday, and that the power generation would stop if an alternative was not found.
