Israel's fuel company renews supply to Gaza
font size    

Israel's company Dor Alon renewed fuel shipments to the Gaza Strip on Monday, a day after halting supplies to the area that was under control of the Islamic Resistance Movement (Hamas), local newspaper Ha'aretz said.

"Beginning today, we have resumed the regular supply of fuel to the Gaza Strip," said a statement released by Dor Alon, the exclusive supplier of fuel to the coastal strip.

The Israeli company on Sunday halted the supply of gasoline and natural gas to Gaza, with the exception of power stations after it failed to establish contact with its Palestinian partners, the report said.

A representative of Palestinian gasoline companies had warned that the territory could run out of fuel for cars and cooking within two days if Israel did not restore supplies.

According to a Yedioth Ahronoth report, the fuel is paid for by the Palestinian National Authority in the West Bank.

Dor Alon delivers the gas to a terminal on the Israeli side of the Israel-Gaza border, and it is pumped through to another terminal just inside Gaza, the report said.

The Gaza terminal is run by the Palestinian Fuel Administration which sells gasoline to Palestinian sub-contractors, who have Hamas' permission to distribute it to stations in the strip.

Meanwhile, Israel Electric Corp supplies Gaza with some 100 megawatts of electricity.

Israel's Infrastructure Minister Binyamin Ben-Eliezer is expected to hold a meeting on Wednesday to discuss if Israel should continue supplying Gaza with water, power and gas.
