Israel to pump diesel to Gaza for power plant

The IDF said 1 million liters of diesel will be pumped Wednesday to the Gaza Strip to power its electricity plant. The plant supplies one-third of Gaza's electricity, and Gaza officials said it was in danger of shutting down later Wednesday if fuel wasn't supplied. One million liters is enough to power the plant for at least three days. Fuel shipments have been sporadic since Palestinian terrorists attacked an Israeli fuel depot just across the border from Gaza earlier this month. Two Israeli civilian workers were killed in that assault. The military said the last fuel shipment was a week ago, when diesel and cooking gas were delivered.
