Rafah crossing reopened
Rafah crossing between the Gaza Strip and Egypt was reopened Wednesday after four days of closure due to disputes between Hamas and the Egyptian authorities. The main point of the differences was that those who left the Palestinian territory passed the crossing slowly, Hamas said, accusing Egypt for delaying the process.
The Hamas authorities said people who were scheduled to travel last week would be leaving Wednesday.
Ayoub Abu Sha'ar, a Hamas official, said the two sides had reached an agreement to resolve problems. Hamas sources conveyed Cairo promised to let more than 500 passengers to leave the Strip every day.
