GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- Egyptian authorities denied entry to a Kuwaiti delegation bringing aid to the Gaza Strip on Thursday as it opened the Rafah crossing for humanitarian cases.

Palestinian crossing officials said that injured Palestinians, medical patients and foreign nationals were allowed to use the crossing and Gaza residents in Egypt were allowed to return.

Egyptian security prevented a four-man Kuwaiti delegation carrying medical aid from entering Gaza.

No reason was given for the refusal.

Egyptian authorities have largely kept the Rafah crossing closed since the army ousted President Mohamed Morsi in 2013.

The terminal is the only border crossing that most of Gaza's 1.8 million people can use to leave the enclave.

Perhaps, because I was raised in a household where my brothers and I were powerless and abused as children--I am VERY sensitive to issues where there are victims and bullies. The Palestine peoples have been victims, far too long and the Israelis (with the help of my country, America), the bullies for, far too long. Justice, land, healthcare, commerce and peace, CANNOT and WILL NOT be denied to the Palestinian People----anymore! I stand with them and their rightful claim to their humanity!

These are human beings not animals, even animals have better rights then the people of Palestine, they have been living in a cage for decades! They have rights to freedom and to feel independent and secure on their own land. Israel should give back the land that belongs to the Palestinians. The leaders may deny the rights of Palestine but, millions of ordinary people around the globe see the truth and the struggles faced by the people of Palestine and are united in the call for freedom.
