Egypt Opens Gaza Crossing for Four Days
Egypt has opened its border with Gaza for the first time in two months, The Associated Press (AP) reported on Monday.
The Rafah border crossing opened Monday for four days, allowing Palestinian Arabs to travel in both directions, according to the news agency.
Crossing director Khaled al-Shaer said some 20,000 people have applied to exit the coastal strip. Gazans seeking medical care and students are among those expected to cross.
Rafah is Gaza’s only gateway to the outside world, and Egypt has kept it mostly closed since the Hamas terrorist group seized control of the area in 2007. Details
