Garbage collection vehicles in the Gaza Strip stopped working on Sunday due to lack of fuel.

Gaza municipality officials said that the garbage vehicles can no longer be used for waste collection because gas stations across the Gaza Strip have run out of fuel as a result of the Israeli-Egyptian siege.

Mohammad al-Farra, Gaza Minister of Local Government, said in a press conference on Sunday that there are around 70 garbage collection vehicles in the Gaza strip that have been pulled from service due to lack of fuel, reported the Ma'an News. 

The garbage vehicles would be replaced by "primitive means such as donkeys" in order to transport 1,700 tons of solid waste from the streets of the Gaza Strip daily.
