Qatar has agreed to provide Gaza with free fuel in order to help alleviate an ongoing fuel crisis, Gaza news portal Al Resalah quoted Hamas Prime Minister Ismail Haniyeh as saying Tuesday.

Haniyeh said Hamas would discuss the deal with Egypt, a few days after Egypt's ambassador to the Palestinian territories said Cairo agreed to provide imported fuel to the Gaza Strip. 

Haniyeh said that "research is underway" in order to determine how and from where to import the Qatari fuel.

Hamas has refused to accept fuel imports from Egypt that Cairo insisted be imported into Gaza through Israel, with some officials in Gaza blaming Egyptian intelligence services for exacerbating the energy crisis in the Strip.
