Egypt opens Rafah crossing, denies Kuwaiti aid entry to Gaza

Aug. 14, 2014 2:45 P.M. (Updated: Aug. 14, 2014 5:42 P.M.)
GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- Egyptian authorities denied entry to a Kuwaiti delegation bringing aid to the Gaza Strip on Thursday as it opened the Rafah crossing for humanitarian cases.

Palestinian crossing officials said that injured Palestinians, medical patients and foreign nationals were allowed to use the crossing and Gaza residents in Egypt were allowed to return.

Egyptian security prevented a four-man Kuwaiti delegation carrying medical aid from entering Gaza.

No reason was given for the refusal.

Egyptian authorities have largely kept the Rafah crossing closed since the army ousted President Mohamed Morsi in 2013.

The terminal is the only border crossing that most of Gaza's 1.8 million people can use to leave the enclave.
