Israel to allow entry of fuel into Gaza Strip

May 5, 2019 12:01 P.M. (Updated: May 6, 2019 12:25 P.M.)
GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- Israeli authorities decided, on Sunday, to allow the entry of truckloads of fuel into the besieged Gaza Strip, despite the recent escalation between Israel and Gaza.

Hebrew-language news outlets reported that despite the general closure of all border crossings with Gaza, Israeli authorities allowed the entry of fuel through the Kerem Shalom border crossing, in order to generate electricity from a local power plant in Gaza.

There are three crossings into the Gaza Strip; two are controlled by Israel and one by Egypt. The Gaza-Israel crossings are the Erez crossing in the northern Gaza Strip, that is specifically for pedestrians, and Kerem Shalom in the southern Gaza Strip for the entry of goods and fuel. The Gaza-Egypt crossing is the Rafah crossing in the southern Gaza Strip, but is often closed and lacks infrastructure for it to be a main commercial crossing.
