CAIRO (Ma'an) – The Egyptian authorities will open the Rafah crossing between Egypt and the Gaza Strip from Saturday until Thursday, a Palestinian official said.
Ambassador to Cairo Barakat al-Farra said in a statement Tuesday that the agreement was reached with the Egyptian authorities to open the crossing.
The statement highlighted that the terminal would be shut down on Tuesday because it coincides with an official Egyptian holiday.
The ambassador urged all Gaza students studying abroad to contact the embassy as soon as possible via email.
