GAZA CITY: Lack of fuel from Israel brought Gaza's lone power plant to a halt on Friday, just 12 days after it was fired back to life following a seven-week shutdown, the Palestinian territory's electricity firm said.

"The plant stopped working on Friday morning due to a lack of fuel caused by Israel's closure of the Kerem Shalom crossing," an electricity company official said.

Israel closed the crossing to the besieged Palestinian territitory on Tuesday following a series of violent incidents on the border with the Jewish state.
