Qatari diesel to enter Gaza on Wednesday

July 7, 2015 9:48 P.M. (Updated: July 7, 2015 9:48 P.M.)
RAMALLAH (Ma'an) -- The Palestinian Prime Minister said Tuesday that all arrangements regarding the remaining quantity of diesel from a Qatari donation to the Gaza power station have been settled.

The remaining diesel quantity, estimated to be around 10,000 tons, is currently in storehouses of the Egyptian company Copetrol.

PM Rami Hamdallah said that the first ship of diesel will be transferred to the Gaza Strip via the Kerem Shalom crossing.

He pointed out that the transferred amount of diesel will increase the power station’s capacity to 80 megawatts which will provide electricity for several more hours.

Hamdallah thanked Qatar for its donation and Egypt for the arrangements and facilitating transferring the diesel to the Gaza Strip.
