Worried Gazans stockpile supplies

West Bank: People in Gaza are closely monitoring the protests in Egypt, which has affected prices in the Gaza Strip. The incident also worsens the Israeli-imposed siege on the Palestinians in Gaza, who have been cut off from the outside world for years. Egyptian protesters took to the streets for the sixth consecutive day on Sunday to express their rage against President Hosni Mubarak and his Government, urging Mubarak to resign.

The protests came after the Tunisian revolution two weeks ago, which toppled President Zine al-Abidine Ben Ali after 23 years in power.

At least 150 have been killed and thousands more injured in clashes since anti-government rallies began across Egypt on Tuesday.

Israel has banned many goods, including the main necessities, from entering the Gaza Strip through the Rafah border crossing, which is the main entry and exit post between Egypt and the coastal enclave.

Since the underground tunnels grant access to such goods, Gazans bring in many of their basic necessities through these tunnels such as construction material and fuel.

Locals can be seen queuing at gas stations stockpiling fuel, over fears that supplies from Egypt could be halted by the turmoil gripping the country. Pess TV
