Hamas stanset drivstoff til Gaza

Christine Mohn

I hen­hold til norske medier nek­ter Israel inn­byg­gerne i Gaza å motta hjelpe­sen­din­ger med mat, medi­si­ner og driv­stoff. Denne artik­ke­len kunne neppe stått på trykk i en norsk avis:

Hamas militi­amen in the Gaza Strip on Sun­day attacked fuel trucks hea­ded toward the Nahal Oz bor­der crossing, for­cing them to turn back, sources in the Pale­sti­nian Petro­leum Aut­hority said.

Dozens of Hamas militi­amen hur­led sto­nes and ope­ned fire at the trucks,” the sources added. “The trucks were on their way to rece­ive fuel sup­plied by Israel. The dri­vers were for­ced to turn back. Some of them had their winds­hields smashed.”

The Pale­sti­nian Petro­leum Aut­hority reached an agreement with Israel over the week­end to rece­ive 250,000 liters of fuel after UNRWA com­plai­ned that it did not have enough fuel to dis­tri­bute food aid to more than 500,000 Pale­sti­ni­ans in the Gaza Strip.

The Pale­sti­nian Aut­hority Health Mini­s­try also accu­sed Hamas of block­ing fuel sup­plies to hos­pi­tals and cli­nics in the Gaza Strip. The mini­s­try said Hamas gun­men ope­ned fire at a num­ber of trucks that were try­ing to trans­fer fuel to the hos­pi­tals and clinics.

Eyewit­nes­ses in Gaza City said that at least on four occa­sions over the past few weeks, Hamas militi­amen con­fis­cated trucks loa­ded with fuel shortly as they were on their way from Nahal Oz to the city.

They added that the fuel sup­plies were taken to Hamas-controlled security instal­la­tions throug­hout the city.

Hamas is taking the fuel for the vehic­les of is lea­ders and security for­ces,” the eyewit­nes­ses said. “Because of Hamas’s actions, some hos­pi­tals have been for­ced to stop the work of ambu­lances and generators.”

PA offi­ci­als in Ramal­lah said Hamas’s measu­res were aimed at crea­ting a cri­sis in the Gaza Strip with the hope that the inter­na­tio­nal com­mu­nity would inter­vene and force Israel to reopen the bor­der crossings.
