Gaza5may6GAZA (PNIC):-Egyptian authorities opened the Rafah border crossing with the Gaza Strip in both directions following a three-day closure.

The Rafah crossing media office said the crossing will be opened as of Monday to allow passengers to leave the besieged enclave and other stranded travelers to return to their homes.

In 2017, the Rafah crossing was opened for 35 days only, with approximately 35,000 humanitarian cases registered with the Egyptian interior ministry.

Rafah crossing and the other crossings in Gaza had been handed over to the Palestinian Authority (PA) following the latest reconciliation agreement signed on October 12, 2017, between Fatah and Hamas under the auspices of the Egyptian intelligence.
