A Palestinian company supplying electricity to the central Gaza Strip announced Friday that it would cut off power later in the day since Israel had closed a crossing through which fuel is brought into the Palestinian area. "For two days we have not received fuel," the chairman of the Gaza Generating Company, Rafik Malikha, told a press conference in Gaza City. "The Israeli side is preventing vehicles from approaching the crossing." The Israeli army spokesman said the crossing had been closed since Wednesday for security reasons he could not detail.
