Rafah crossing open Monday for August 14 applicants

Aug. 21, 2011 9:03 P.M. (Updated: Aug. 21, 2011 9:03 P.M.)
GAZA CITY (Ma’an) -- The Ministry of Interior in Gaza said Sunday that travel via the Rafah crossing on Monday will only be for passengers who registered to travel on August 14.

The ministry instructed travelers to proceed to Abu Yousef An-Najjar hall in the southern city of Khan Younis at 10.00.a.m.

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.
