Israel says it will allow two trucks of fuel a day into Gaza


Israel says it will allow two fuel trucks a day to enter the Gaza Strip, after pressure to do so from the US, Paralel.Az reports citing BBC.

A US State Department official says around 140,000 litres of fuel will be allowed in every two days.

Most of that is intended for trucks delivering aid, as well as supporting the UN in providing water and sanitation, the official said.

The rest is for mobile phone and internet services, which had been cut off due to a lack of fuel.

On Friday, the company which provides Gaza's communications said that its services were returning after receiving some fuel via Unrwa, the UN's agency for Palestinian refugees.
