UN refugee agency to shut down operations in Gaza due to no fuel

# The United Nations Agency for Palestine Refugees has warned that its humanitarian operations in Gaza will grind to a halt in 48 hours when it runs out of fuel. The agency’s chief Thomas White says over the past three weeks, and after close coordination with the government of Israel, they were able to access a bulk reservoir of fuel in Gaza on the border with Egypt. However, this reservoir is now empty. He says no fuel has entered Gaza since last week Tuesday.
