Egypt on Saturday reopened for the second time the Rafah crossing border, Gaza’s only non-Israeli outlet to the outside world, to receive injured Palestinians and allow passing of food and medical supplies from the Arab countries into the war-torn Gaza strip.
The border was first opened on Thursday to allow the crossing of eleven injured Palestinians and 392 stranded Egyptian nationality holders.
It was closed on Friday by the Egyptian authorities following a clash between security forces and Palestinian militants at the opening of one of the tunnels in Egypt’s border city of Rafah.
