Egypt resumes Qatar fuel shipments to Gaza

EL-ARISH, Egypt (Ma'an) -- Egyptian authorities have resumed shipping Qatari
fuel into the Gaza Strip via an Israeli-controlled crossing after unrest
blocked the delivery route for over two months, a Palestinian official said
Monday.

Amr Hadhoud, the Palestinian representative at the Al-Auja crossing, said
all obstacles to the shipments have been overcome.

Violent clashes between Sinai armed groups and Egyptian forces in November
led to a suspension in deliveries.

Hadhoud said that ten trucks carrying 450,000 liters of diesel arrived at
al-Auja crossing on Sunday. Four trucks then crossed into the Gaza Strip,
Sunday, and the other six are scheduled to cross Monday.

The Qatari fuel is part of 27 million liters donated by the Gulf state to
ease Gaza's energy crisis. It was delivered to Egypt and is being
transferred to Gaza with Israeli cooperation through the Sinai border
region.

Palestinian officials said 10 million liters have already arrived in Gaza
