RAFAH, (PIC)-- Palestinian citizens and notables staged a sit-in at the Rafah border crossing between Egypt and Gaza on Saturday demanding an end to the fuel and power crisis.
The participants hoisted placards asking Egypt to expedite sending fuel supplies, criticizing Cairo for delaying sending fuel shipments despite receiving money for that purpose.
They also asked the Egyptian authority to link its national grid to Gaza electricity network.
Mansour Breik, the head of a popular committee in Rafah, said that the power crisis, which has been plaguing the Strip for the past month, had negatively affected the people’s needs.
He urged Cairo to adopt a political decision ending once and for all the Gaza power crisis.
