Gaza-Egypt Border Crossing Reopened For Evacuations Says Hamas

The Hamas government says the Rafah crossing between the Gaza Strip and Egypt reopened yesterday to allow the evacuation of foreigners, dual nationals and wounded Palestinians from the territory being shelled by Israeli forces.

The terminal was opened for three days on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday last week to allow dozens of wounded Palestinians and hundreds of foreign passport-holders to cross before closing Saturday and Sunday amid a dispute over the passage of ambulances.

Agence France-Presse, AFP, reports that sources within the Hamas government said the crossing reopened after an agreement with Israel — secured with Egyptian mediation — to allow the evacuation of 30 wounded people.

Six ambulances arrived at the Egyptian side of the crossing yesterday carrying wounded Palestinians to be transported to hospitals, a border official told AFP.

Yesterday, the United Nations Secretary-General, Antonio Guterres, said Gaza is becoming a graveyard for children with hundreds of girls and boys reportedly being killed or injured every day.
