Ramattan: "Gazans distribute pollution masks"

This is just sad on so many levels.
Palestinian college students in Gaza on Wednesday distributed pollutions masks to pedestrians the city.

The volunteering students said that they try to participate in protecting people from the severe pollution in Gaza resulted in the use of cocking [sic] oil for vehicles as a result of lack of fuel.

"We support using alternatives if we don’t have petrol but we can't allow using something to harm our health like cocking [sic] oil," one of the student told RNA.

Several reports issued by Human rights organizations in Gaza warned of the use of cocking [sic] oil for cars, asserting that it causes cancer.
I didn't know cars could get cancer.

Update: EOZ discovers another health-hazard associated with the Gaza fuel shortage.
