GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- The Gaza Strip is facing a fuel crisis since political unrest in Egypt led to the closure of smuggling tunnels, fuel company officials warned Thursday.

Deputy head of fuel companies in the Strip Mahmoud Al-Khazendar said gas stations have completely run out of fuel.

Most petrol and diesel supplies enter the coastal enclave through underground tunnels from Egypt, but the trade has ground to a halt since protests to oust Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak erupted across the country.
