(IsraelNN.com) Mahmoud Hiznadar, the head of Gaza’s Gas Association, said Thursday that Gaza is almost out of gas. Gaza’s population needs 350,000 liters of gas each day for its electric station, he said, as well as 470,000 liters of gas and benzene for civilian use. He urged the international community to pressure Israel to allow more gas into Gaza.
Israeli officials have said they will limit the supply of gas in response to rocket attacks, and may limit the supply of electricity as well. By limiting the supply without cutting it completely, officials have explained, Hamas will be forced to ration supplies and will bear responsibility for any critical shortages.
