Gaza factories threatened with shutdown due to power crisis

GAZA, (PIC)-- Head of the federation of Palestinian industries Ali Al-Hayek warned of the serious repercussions of the power outages on the local industrial production in the besieged Gaza Strip.

Hayek said that dozens of factories, especially those which work in the fields of construction and food, would shut down because of the insufficient fuel supplies used to generate the power needed to operate their industrial machinery.

He called on the authorities in Gaza to assume their responsibilities and work on saving the industrial sector.

"I demand the government in Gaza to provide the fuel shipments used by factories in the production of local products, especially the diesel fuel needed to operate the machinery," he said.
