Gaza ministry: Rafah crossing open for July applicants after delays

Aug. 3, 2011 11:59 A.M. (Updated: Aug. 3, 2011 11:59 A.M.)
GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- The Ministry of Interior in Gaza said Wednesday that passengers who had registered to travel to Egypt via the Rafah crossing on July 24 and 25 could now undertake their journey after lengthy delays.

The ministry instructed passengers to proceed to Abu Yousef An-Najjar hall in the southern city of Khan Younis, noting that priority will be given to medical patients, students and those holding residency visas to other countries.

The southern terminal, which is the only entry and exit point from the Gaza Strip not controlled by Israel, was opened to travelers in May 2011.

Egyptian and Gazan authorities have struggled to cope with huge demand and coordinating procedures, leading to travel delays.
