Rafah-Ma'an-The Al-Yasser Brigades, the military wing of the Fatah Movement, praised the decision of the PA President, Mahmoud Abbas to take control of the Rafah Border Crossing and transfer all authority related to the crossing to the Presidency.

The spokesman for the Brigades, Al Mutasim Billah, confirmed the independence of the crossing and said that Abbas's decision will improve the situation at the crossing.

Al Mutasim denied any involvement of the Brigades in the shooting that took place near the gate of the crossing, in which armed Palestinians called for the continuation of the resistance against the Israeli occupation until the liberation of Palestine.
