Hamas Does Have Priorities You Know
Gaza City (Palestinian Territories) (AFP) - A shortage of fuel halted the production of electricity across the Gaza Strip on Friday, said the energy authority of the Islamist movement Hamas, which controls the Palestinian enclave.So they just can't pay for electricity for the people of Gaza.
"We have completely stopped the operation of (Gaza's sole) power plant this morning at 6:00 am (0400 GMT) because we don't have a single litre of fuel," Fathi el-Sheikh Khalil, the authority's deputy chairman, told AFP.
An AFP correspondent in the Gaza Strip said the electricity supply had been cut off across most of the territory.
Khalil blamed the power outage on Egypt's destruction of tunnels used for bringing fuel to Gaza and accused the Western-backed Palestinian Authority of charging Hamas too much for its fuel.
On Thursday (24.10) more than 14,000 Palestinian weapons were seized at the Ashdod port.Maybe they should have spend that on fuel, because now they are out the money and also out of gas.
The container was marked as suspicious and after the opening, there were found thousands cold weapons and other war materiel.
You are doing a heckuva job there Hamas.
