Qatar cuts fuel support to besieged Gaza by half

Gaza (QNN) – Qatari Ambassador to Palestine Mohammed al-Emadi has decided to cut fuel support to besieged Gaza Strip by half, according to Israeli media sources.

The Israeli reporter Jackie Hoji said on Sunday that al-Emadi has retreated from an agreement he had signed earlier to pay for Gaza fuel until the end of this year.

The agreement, signed by Qatar and the United Nations, stated that Qatar buys three million liters of diesel a week from an Israeli company which, in turn, forwards it to the besieged enclave. This has granted Gaza residents electricity for eight hours a day.

Al-Emadi’s recent decision means that Qatar will only pay for 1.5 liters of diesel a week, lessening the time during which the Gazans enjoy electricity to four hours a day.

On August 26, 2019, the Israeli occupation government decided to punish Gaza residents for the rocket attacks against Israeli settlements by reducing the fuel entering Gaza Strip by half.
