 13 Mar 2014 - 4:05


Doha: Under the directives of the Emir H H Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani, Qatar has decided to supply the Gaza Strip with necessary fuel to run power plants in the Strip at a value of QR110m. 
The additional aid comes due to the bonds of brotherhood and due keenness of Qatar to alleviate the suffering of the Palestinian people in the Gaza Strip. Qatar had earlier supplied the Gaza Strip with fuel at a value of QR115m, after the stoppage of power plants in the Strip as fuel ran out.
The Emir H H Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani, spoke on Sunday with Hamas’s Gaza prime minister, Ismail Haniyah, and told him that “Qatar will continue to support and help Gaza.” 
The conversation came days after the governments of Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, and the UAE withdrew their ambassadors from Qatar in protest over Qatar’s support for Muslim Brotherhood and Hamas. QNA/Agencies
