Egypt army sends aid to Gaza Strip

July 12, 2014 10:17 P.M. (Updated: July 12, 2014 10:17 P.M.)
CAIRO (Ma'an) -- Egypt's army transferred six truckloads of aid to the Rafah crossing on Saturday to be taken into Gaza.

Over 2,500 boxes of medical supplies and 9,000 packages of nutritional supplements were among the aid.

Earlier, Egyptian authorities opened the Rafah crossing with Gaza to allow the 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 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.

Egypt has largely kept the Rafah crossing, the only border through which Palestinians can exit Gaza, closed during Israel's assault on the territory.
