Egypt allows a few Palestinians to cross Rafah border

21 Jan
Report from Rafah Border Crossing FB, 20 January 2014
“The Gate of #Gaza central prison (Rafah crossing) is open today, tomorrow and (Thursday). Out of 40,000 people wishing to leave, only 4 buses of 200 people managed to cross so far; 54 out of which were forced to return back to Gaza by the Egyptian authorities because they didn’t have enough papers or reasons to leave.

People at the Rafah crossing say the situation is unbearable.”

Egypt has kept the Rafah crossing tightly closed except for a small number of people on a few days since 24 October last year. See earlier reports on [Ed]
