EU: Funds for Gaza fuel reached PA
EU: Funds for Gaza fuel reached PA
The European Union (EU) has denied slashing funds allocated for financing the fuel purchases necessary to operate the Gaza power station, affirming that the funds were paid to the PA in Ramallah in full.

The European campaign to lift the siege on Gaza said on Saturday that it received official messages from EU officials, including foreign ministers, in reply to its inquiry about halting the financing of the fuel.

It assertede that the official messages clearly stated that the EU did not reduce the amount of funds or halt them but rather the PA in Ramallah last November asked that the money be deposited with it and asked the EU to leave it to Ramallah to decide where to spend those funds according to priorities.

The European officials, who appeared upset over smearing the EU image in the media in this regard, said that they would discuss the issue with Ramallah.

The campaign, for its part, criticized the exploitation of humanitarian needs of one and a half million Palestinians in political wrangling, especially when it could lead to the loss of hundreds of lives topped by the patients.
