      Israel Transfers Fuel to Gaza

      Sky News Australia reports Israel has begun transferring fuel to the Gaza Strip's sole power plant, a Palestinian Arab official says, as the Hamas-ruled enclave struggles to deal with massive flooding caused by winter downpours.

      Israel would be transferring 450,000 litres of fuel to the plant, which has been shut down for about 50 days, adds Sky News Australia.

      Israel sold the fuel to the PA, notes Sky News Australia, which paid with funds supplied by gas-rich Gulf state Qatar.
