Egypt to open Gaza border for three days

Palestine: Saudi Arabia, Egypt using Rafah crossing to pressure us Gaza's Rafah Crossing Opens Under PA Control for the First Time in a Decade

On Thursday, the Palestinian embassy in Cairo said Egypt will reopen the Rafah crossing for a three-day period on Saturday to allow Palestinians to cross on both directions.

An Egyptian-brokered reconciliation deal last month formally restored Palestinian President Abbas's administrative control of Gaza, including its border crossings with Israel and Egypt, after a 10-year schism with Islamist Hamas. Palestinian officials also confirmed to The Media Line that Israel is considering withholding tax revenues-to the tune of some $200 million monthly-it collects on behalf of the PA in response to the reconciliation accord and the eventual incorporation of Hamas members into the Palestinian government.

Egypt's border with the Gaza Strip had been totally sealed since August, and was largely closed for years beforehand.

During a meeting held by the Independent Committee for Human Rights in Gaza, Hamas member Khalil Al-Hayya said: "If we want the Palestinians to see a real reconciliation in Gaza and the West Bank, it must be based on partnership". As a first step, they handed over control of the crossings on November 1.
