European Union Observers Rebuffed Again by Hamas

EU monitors have once again been told by Hamas their services are “not required” at the border crossing between Gaza and Egypt. On Monday, the Gaza official in charge of the region's crossings, Maher Abu Sabha, was quoted by the Palestinian Authority-based website Alresalah as saying the “'Europeans' had started to talk about their return to the crossing to maintain security," following their exit from the region in 2007.
