Hamas: Egypt Will Reopen the Border Crossing

The Hamas government in Gaza said on Thursday that Egypt will open the Rafiah crossing on Saturday, a week after it was closed because of the ongoing terrorism in the Sinai.

According to Hamas, Egypt responded to the pressure that was exerted on it by Hamas Prime Minister Ismail Haniyeh. The organization added that the crossing will be open for four hours each day for the transfer of humanitarian supplies and for the passage of Gaza residents.
