EU Monitors: Rafiah Border Crossing Under Good Control

The Rafiah border crossing between Egypt and Gaza is under good control, according to European Union monitors interviewed over the weekend by the Associated Press.

Nonetheless, the monitors also acknowledge they have no control over cash being smuggled through the border into the waiting pockets of the Hamas-ruled Palestinian Authority in Gaza.

Israeli security officials maintain that terrorists and arms are also managing to get through the crossing, despite the EU observers’ confidence and claims by PA officials that they are entering Gaza through smuggler tunnels, not the crossing.
