GAZA CITY (Ma’an) -- Palestinian travelers are stranded in Arab and international airports as Rafah crossing is closed for the fourth day in a row due to unrest in Egypt, officials said Monday.

Travelers said Egyptian airlines were refusing to let Palestinians board due to the inability to continue traveling to Gaza through Rafah, which is controlled by Egyptian security authorities.

Maher Abu Sabha, general director of crossings, told Ma’an that the crossing was closed on both sides for the fourth day in a row. He said communication at the highest level were ongoing to reopen it.
