CAIRO (Ma'an) -- Egypt's army transferred six truckloads of aid to the Rafah crossing on Saturday to be taken into Gaza.

Over 2,500 boxes of medical supplies and 9,000 packages of nutritional supplements were among the aid.

Earlier, Egyptian authorities opened the Rafah crossing with Gaza to allow the entry of injured Gaza citizens into Egypt for medical treatment and to allow holders of Egyptian and foreign passports to leave the coastal enclave.

Officials in the Palestinian border and crossing department said that thousands of special cases including students and patients were waiting in Egypt hoping the crossing would be open for them to return to Gaza.

Egypt has largely kept the Rafah crossing, the only border through which Palestinians can exit Gaza, closed during Israel's assault on the territory.

Minimum support, basically a photo op. Egypt would like nothing better than to see Hamas destroyed and it may get its wish.

More likely they are there to make sure no Hamas operatives try to sneak away in women's clothing, something these tough guys are expert at. As Israel tightens the noose, Egypt will be there to make sure nobody slips through. The estimated lifespan for Hamas members is probably less than one week. The lawyers will be busy preparing wills for the soon to be departed.
