Democratic Front demands Egypt to open Rafah crossing to passengers

GAZA, (PIC)-- Senior official of the Democratic Front for the Liberation of Palestine (DFLP) Ziyad Jarghoun appealed to the Egyptian authorities to open the Rafah border crossing and allow thousands of Palestinian passengers to enter the Gaza Strip.

During a symposium organized by the union of Palestinian women in Rafah, Jarghoun also called on Egypt to allow Gaza people to travel freely through the Rafah border crossing, especially patients, students and holders of foreign passports.

"It is unreasonable for the closure of the Rafah crossing to continue for more than a month, in light of Israel's closure of all crossings of the Strip except for one crossing, which has turned the Gaza Strip into a big prison," he stated.

The DFLP official stressed that the Palestinian people want Egypt to return to its leading role in supporting their national cause.

In another context, the Hamas Movement slammed the continued Egyptian media smear campaign against it, describing it as an attempt to escape internal obligations and crises. more
