Hamas rejects Palestinian call for Gaza cease-fire
« on: July 29, 2014, 11:33:22 AM »

At least 40% of Gaza's fuel was burned and more was burning Tuesday, according to Fathi al-Sheikh Khalil, deputy chairman of the Palestinian Energy Natural Resources Authority in Gaza. The plant will have to be reconstructed and will not operate as it did for at least a year, he said.

"We cannot supply electricity" for hospitals, sewage treatment or domestic use, he said. "This is a disaster."

He demanded that Israel supply Gaza with the power needed to make up for what was lost.

"We demand from Israel, since it is directly responsible to what happened to the power plant, to immediately substitute this quantity of electricity to Gaza, else they are responsible for all the humanitarian consequences in Gaza."
