Gaza Strip Totally Runs Out of Fuels, Says Official

Sunday, 19 November 2000 12:00 AM

Louai Arandas told reporters that normal activities in the Gaza Strip would stop within the next few days if Israel kept closing the borders of the Palestinian territories.

"The crisis of fuel shortages ... increased in the last couple of weeks when Israel, without any warning, blocked fuel tankers from entering into Gaza," Arandas said. "This will have a negative impact on the population."

He said that the last fuel vehicle arrived on the Gaza border on Friday but was turned back by the Israeli military.

More than 1 million people live in the Gaza Strip.
