Two fuel-laden trucks entered the blockaded Gaza Strip on Tuesday from Israel via the Kerem Shalom commercial crossing.

According to an Anadolu Agency correspondent at the scene, the trucks were seen heading towards Gaza’s sole functioning electricity plant.

While Palestinian officials have been tight-lipped regarding the source of the fuel, Al Jazeera reported earlier that it had been provided by Qatar.

Last week, Israeli daily Haaretz reported that a deal had been struck with Qatar regarding means of funding fuel procurements for Gaza.

Since 2007, the Gaza Strip has groaned under a crippling Israeli blockade that has deprived its roughly two million inhabitants of several vital commodities, including food, fuel and medicine.
