Official: Gaza Faces Severe Shortage of Cooking Gas

Gaza is facing severe shortages of cooking gas due to recent storms which have prevented crossings from fully operating, a local union official said.

Mahmoud al-Shawwa told Ma’an that in the past 10 days only 40 tons of cooking gas have entered Gaza, despite daily needs of over 300 tons for the population of 1.7 million Palestinians.

Most filling stations are closed due to the shortages.

In the days since Storm Huda landed in the Holy Land, scores of families in Gaza have been evacuated from their homes due to flooding.

Severe flooding is being reported in parts of the southern Gaza Strip, particularly affecting families living in mobile homes and others displaced by the Israeli assault.
