Israel targets Rafah crossing

Aug. 25, 2014 12:49 P.M. (Updated: Aug. 27, 2014 5:47 P.M.)
GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- Israeli warplanes fired three missiles at the Rafah crossing late Sunday, causing major damage to a yard in the terminal, a Gaza official said.

Mahir Abu Sabha said the missiles created 15-meter deep craters at the crossing, which will remain open.

"We will operate over the rubble and nothing will prevent us from continuing our work," Abu Sabha said.

Israeli forces targeted the outer hall, which serves as a waiting area, earlier during its military offensive on the besieged enclave.
