Gaza, 15 giugno 2017, Nena News – «La sicurezza delle frontiere meridionali con l’Egitto è una priorità e il nostro governo farà la sua parte per garantirla», ripeteva due giorni fa ai giornalisti il vice ministro dell’interno di Hamas, Tawfiq Abu Naim, durante un sopralluogo al terminal di Rafah, sul confine tra la Striscia di Gaza e il Sinai.

The Palestinian telecom firm Paltel announced Tuesday that it has cut phone and internet services to Gaza City after one of its generators broke down as a result of the electric power crisis plaguing the Gaza Strip. Tens of thousands of land-line customers and some 8,000 internet users have been cut off, and those numbers could rise.

A three-year-old girl died in the Gaza Strip on Thursday because the Palestinian Authority's Health Ministry in Ramallah delayed approving medical treatment for her in Israel, said the enclave's Hamas-controlled Health Ministry.

GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- The ongoing electricity crisis in the Gaza Strip deepened on Saturday after fuel purchased from Egypt was reduced by between 33 and 50 percent, with Gaza’s power authority claiming the Palestinian Authority (PA) froze all bank transfers to Egypt that were paying for fuel used to operate the besieged coastal enclave's sole power plant.

The Gaza Strip's only operating power plant was turned off late Wednesday due to a severe shortage of fuel, leaving the coastal enclave in a complete blackout, local officials said.
