July 12, 2014 6:44 P.M. (Updated: July 12, 2014 10:17 P.M.)
GAZA CITY (Ma’an) – Egyptian authorities opened the Rafah crossing with Gaza Saturday morning to allow entry of injured Gaza citizens into Egypt for medical treatment and to allow holders of Egyptian and foreign passports to leave the coastal enclave.

Officials in the Palestinian border and crossing department highlighted that the crossing was open in one direction only.

They said that thousands of special cases including students and patients were waiting in Egypt hoping the crossing would be open for them to return to Gaza.

The crossing was opened Thursday and four buses carrying holders of Egyptian passports left for Egypt.

In addition, seven ambulances were allowed into Egypt Thursday each carrying a critically injured person and one escort only.
