Fuel Supply To Be Resumed To Gaza Power Plant

Omar Suleiman is back at work. Which means there is hope of a cease-fire. If that is still relevant. I was never that sure a mere cease fire was a productive way forward in the first place.

Gaza City: A Gaza power plant shut down by the ruling Hamas party will start operating again later on Monday, an official said.Hamas said the plant was shut down on Saturday because it ran out of fuel supplied by Israel. Israel claimed that Hamas was creating an artificial crisis, raising tensions ahead of a visit by the Egyptian mediator trying to broker a truce between the two enemies, and severely limited shipments to pressure Palestinian militants to halt their rocket barrages at nearby Jewish communities.On Sunday, Gaza militants fired three rockets at Israel, the military said. One exploded next to a school bus transporting children, another hit a factory and the third landed at a college. No one was hurt. At Sunday's meeting of Israel's Cabinet, Prime Minister Ehud Olmert pledged to stop the daily barrages.
