Rafah open Saturday for late July applicants

GAZA CITY (Ma’an) -- Palestinian head of the Rafah crossing Ayoub Abu Shaar said Friday that travel via the terminal on Saturday would only be for passengers who had registered for July 28 and 30.

Recent delays at the crossing have prevented registered passengers from traveling on their scheduled journeys.

The ministry instructed passengers to proceed to Abu Yousef An-Najjar hall in the southern city of Khan Younis, noting that priority would 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.
