Israel cancels entry of goods into Gaza

Oct. 23, 2018 11:12 A.M. (Updated: Oct. 24, 2018 4:28 P.M.)
GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- The Israeli army cancelled entry of dozens of trucks carrying goods into the besieged Gaza Strip, on late Monday, according to Palestinian official sources.

Sources confirmed that the Israeli side cancelled entry of dozens of trucks scheduled to arrive into Gaza on Tuesday; reasons of the cancellation were unknown.

It is noteworthy that in addition to these cancelled truckloads of goods, Qatari-funded fuel was also not allowed entry into Gaza for Gaza's only power plant.

Gaza's daily demand of power is between 450 to 500 Megawatts. However, the enclave has struggled for years with power shortages due to limited fuel access and degraded infrastructure.

In 2012, the UN warned that Gaza could become uninhabitable by 2020 if current trends were not altered.

In another report released in July 2017, the UN said that "life for the average Palestinian in Gaza is getting more and more wretched," and that for the majority of Gaza's residents, the territory may already be unlivable.
