After finishing the last of an emergency fuel injection from Israel, Gaza's sole power plant shut down on Sunday morning, the Palestinian Ma'an News agency reported.

Awaiting the completion of a fuel deal between the Hamas and Egypt, the Gazan fuel plant has been been working intermittently. Sunday's closure was the fourth since mid-February, according to Ma'an.

Israel allowed nine fuel tankers to cross into the Gaza Strip on Friday to ease a severe power shortage triggered by the Egypt-Hamas dispute over supplies.

Reuters contributed to this report.
