Egypt to open Rafah crossing for four days

Egyptian authorities have decided to temporarily reopen the Rafah crossing with the besieged Gaza Strip for four days, the Palestinian borders and crossings committee announced on Tuesday.

The committee said that the Rafah crossing would reopen in both directions on Wednesday for four days.

The reopening would affect humanitarian cases and emergencies.

Egypt has only opened the Rafah crossing on a sporadic basis in recent years. Earlier in May, it reopened the crossing for two days, with only several hundred of the more than 30,000 passengers registered to cross making it through. more
