Israeli restrictions on fuel supplies to Gaza are affecting aid deliveries and humanitarian access, an EU commissioner said.
“We are calling for the increase of fuel supplies to the strip,” Janez Lenarcic told journalists in Brussels. “The humanitarian access should be based on the needs and not on some restrictions.”
Lenarcic said aid deliveries to Gaza were encountering two issues: the screening process for trucks at the Rafah crossing and the restrictions on fuel.
“The quantities that are entering daily are not enough,” he said.
