GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- Gaza border officials said almost 3,300 Palestinians traveled through Rafah crossing on Egypt's border last week.

The Gaza Crossings Administration said 1673 Palestinians stranded on the Egyptian side of the crossing were permitted entry into Gaza. Most of them were patients who had received treatment in Egyptian hospitals, a statement said.

Meanwhile, 1,613 individuals traveled through the crossing into Egypt over the week, while 378 were denied passage by Egyptian authorities.

Kerem Shalom crossing

In its weekly report, the administration said Israel opened the Kerem Shalom crossing in southern Gaza, allowing the entry of 1,134 trucks, of which 1003 were for the private sector, 40 carrying humanitarian aid, including 20 for the World Food Program, 14 for UNRWA and the International Red Cross, and six for the Social Affairs Ministry. Additionally, 91 truckloads of fuel entered, of which 39 were natural gas, 51 were of industrial fuel, and one was delivering Benzine.
