AL-ARISH, Egypt (Ma'an) -- Egyptian hospitals are ready to receive Palestinians wounded in Israel's assault on the Gaza Strip, a Egyptian official said Thursday.

Tareq Khater, undersecretary of the health ministry in North Sinai, said medical teams were prepared in hospitals in al-Arish, Rafah, Sheikh Zuweid and Bir al-Abd for patients from Gaza.

Sinai's Al-Ismailiya hospital is on emergency standby, Khater told Ma'an, adding that ambulances were waiting to transfer injured Palestinians.

Egyptian officials said earlier the Rafah crossing on Gaza's border would remain open Thursday and Friday.
