Hebrew media sources on Sunday said that Israel has decided to allow supplies of fuel into the besieged Gaza Strip through Karam Abu Salem crossing days after they were reduced by half.

A few days ago Israel suspended fuel flow to the Gaza Strip after rockets were allegedly launched from the coastal enclave toward neighboring Israeli settlements.

Following the new move a second power generator at Gaza's only power plant is expected to be operational and the electricity distribution schedule will return to 8-hour intervals.

Karam Abu Salem is Gaza's sole commercial crossing through which fuel, medical supplies, food and other kinds of goods enter the blockaded territory.

The Gaza Strip has been living under crippling blockade imposed by Israel since 2006 after Hamas won the legislative elections and later completely took over the seaside area.
