Decision to open Gaza crossing “part of efforts to end status of the Palestinian division,” Egyptian news agency reports.
The Egyptian military announced on Wednesday that it will open the Rafah crossing with the Gaza Strip this weekend, Egypt’s official Middle East News Agency said.
MENA explained that the Rafah border crossing would be opened permanently starting Saturday from 9:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. every day except Fridays and holidays.
The decision to open the Rafah crossing was part of efforts “to end the status of the Palestinian division and achieve national reconciliation,” MENA said.
This is not the first time that an announcement about the opening of the crossing has been made. Egyptian Foreign Minister Nabil Elaraby told Al-Jazeera during an interview in April that the crossing would be opened, but it has remained closed up until this time.
He said during the interview at the time that steps would be taken in order to alleviate the “suffering of the Palestinian people.”

When the Fascist terrorist organization Hamas took control of Gaza, Egypt closed the border with Gaza.
Nothing has changed in Gaza. Hamas is still the ruling regime. But a lot has changed in Egypt. The Muslim Brotherhood seems to win the proclaimed upcoming election.
This Egyptian Islamic terrorist organization share the same ideology as Hamas. They both proclaim that there shall not be a Jewish state in the Middle East. The state of Israel must be ruled by Islam, or has to be deleted.
When the Egyptian border towards Gaza opens for free flow of goods, Islam has secured free flow of provision to strengthen Hamas. Among potatoes and chocolate, you can be sure there will be rockets. Not those you fire at New Year parties, but those you fire into Israel to kill as many Jews as possible.
