Egyptian authorities decided to open Rafah crossing for passenger traffic in both directions for three days starting tomorrow, Saturday.

The crossings and borders committee of Gaza’s Ministry of Interior said in a statement that Palestinian officials were informed by the Egyptian side that the Rafah crossing would be open from Saturday until Monday for humanitarian cases and the entry of the stranded people.

The Comittee said that passengers namelist will be published later on the Ministry of Interior's website.

It is noteworthy that the Egyptian authorities closed Rafah crossing, about 310 days since the beginning of this year, and opened it only for 32 days, as it closed it last year for a period of 344 days, according to the Ministry of Interior in Gaza.
