The weeks-long crisis is inflaming political tensions between Hamas and the Fatah-led Palestinian Authority.

Leaders of the rival factions are trading accusations over the shortage, accusing each other of negligence- "The Palestinian people are subjected to a conspiracy to break the will of the people," Hamas leader Khalil Haya told CNN.
