GAZA CITY: Israel resumed fuel deliveries Sunday to the Gaza Strip's sole power plant, two days after lack of supplies halted electricity production, a Palestinian official said.

"The Kerem Shalom crossing was reopened in the morning, allowing the resumption of fuel supplies to the plant whose operation could resume late Sunday afternoon," the official in Gaza said on condition of anonymity.

The power plant stopped working on Friday due to the closure of the Kerem Shalom border crossing where goods transit between Israel and the Palestinian enclave.

The decision to close the crossing came after the death on Tuesday of an Israeli killed by a Palestinian sniper while working near the border between Israel and the Gaza Strip.
