Eng287BETHLEHEM (PNIC):-The Israeli authorities are expected to transfer three trucks of fuel, funded by Qatar, to the Gaza power plant, according to Israeli Hebrew-language news sites.

Israeli news outlets, however, reported that the Palestinian Authority (PA) is attempting to obstacle the fuel transfer.

The Israeli army reported that upon recent escalations at the Gaza-Israel borders, Israel is expected to transfer three shipments of diesel to Gaza's 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. However, 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.
