(Newser) – Israel is allowing fuel shipments into Gaza again after the region's only power plant had to shut down for 2 days due to lack of fuel. The plant's delivery terminal reopened this morning, the BBC reports. "We have received three trucks of industrial diesel for the power station so far," says an official at the plant.
