Egypt to open Rafah crossing permanently

Published: 05.25.11, 19:57 / Israel News

Egypt's official news agency says the Rafah border crossing with Gaza will be permanently opened for Palestinians on Saturday - a move that will significantly ease a blockade of the impoverished territory.


MENA said Wednesday that Egypt's new military rulers set the date for the opening of the crossing as part of efforts "to end the status of the Palestinian division and achieve national reconciliation." (AP)
