(MENAFN - Qatar News Agency) Egyptian Ambassador to the Palestinian Authority said late Sunday that Egypt will supply the Gaza strip with fuel in the next few days, despite its energy crisis.

Egypt is currently importing diesel from abroad to fill a deficit in local consumption, Yasser Othman told Palestinian news agency (MA'AN).

Egypt will provide the Gaza energy authority with fuel from the imported supplies.

"The Gaza Strip needs 40 to 45 million liters of fuel a month, 15 million liters of that is specially for the electricity company. It's very difficult because Gaza's fuel needs are more than four Egyptian governorates," Othman said.

Last year the Egyptian government spent around 500 million to address an energy crisis in the country, he said.

The energy crisis in Egypt is caused by fuel smuggling along its borders, he added.
