CAIRO (Ma'an) -- Egypt will reopen Rafah crossing for three days starting on Tuesday, the Palestinian ambassador to Egypt said.

Barakat al-Farra thanked Egypt for its efforts in easing the suffering of Palestinians in Gaza Strip.

The Rafah crossing has been the principal connection between Gaza's 1.7 million residents and the outside world since the imposition of an economic blockade by Israel beginning in 2007.

Rafah has frequently been shut down or operating at reduced capacity in recent months due to ongoing unrest in Egypt's Sinai Peninsula and political turmoil resulting from former president Mohamed Morsi's ouster by the Egyptian military in July.
