Gaza residents have been without electricity for most of the day this week due to the Palestinian Authoritys halt in fuel shipments through Israeli crossings. Unlike previous blackouts allegedly caused by limited Israeli shipments of diesel, the international community generally has remained silent.
The PA in Ramallah, headed by the Fatah party, is demanding back payment of millions of dollars for electricity. The rival Hamas party, which controls Gaza, claims that most of the money wasnt paid because it is used for operating costs of the Gaza generator
Hang on, PA. Barry is sending wind turbines and solar panels.
Media blackout too. ;)
What the Palestinians are being oppressed! By whom? Oh, well, never mind!
