Al-Mamlaka TV correspondent mentioned that the power plant would stop working on Saturday due to a “significant shortage” of fuel used to generate electricity.

On Friday, the Israeli occupation authorities retracted the entry of trucks loaded with fuel after the announcement by the director of the Karam Abu Salem crossing, Bassam Ghabin, that the crossing has been opened at 04:00 pm exceptionally to enter it, according to Al-Mamlaka TV.

Al-Mamlaka TV correspondent said that the Israeli occupation informed the Palestinian authorities of reversing the entry of trucks, which were announced to be allowed to enter the Gaza Strip on Friday morning after Israel agreed to allow six fuel trucks to fuel the power plant.
