CAIRO (Ma'an) -- Egypt will open the Rafah crossing with Gaza for three days on Saturday for students and humanitarian cases, the Palestinian Authority ambassador to Egypt said Wednesday.
Barakat al-Farra told Ma'an that Egypt will open the crossing from Saturday to Monday to allow Gazan students who study in Egypt to catch up with their university courses.
Humanitarian cases will also be allowed to cross, al-Farra added.
The PA ambassador thanked the Egyptian government for responding to the requests of President Abbas to open the crossing and ease the suffering of Palestinians in Gaza. more
