Official: Egypt unable to open Rafah crossing

Nov. 23, 2014 10:06 P.M. (Updated: Nov. 25, 2014 11:08 A.M.)
CAIRO (Ma'an) – The Egyptian political leadership is coordinating with the country's national security to try and work out a solution for more than 6,000 Palestinians stuck in Egypt due to the ongoing closure of the Rafah crossing.

A high-profile Egyptian official told Ma'an in Cairo Sunday that the dire security conditions in North Sinai district prevented the Egyptian authorities from opening the Rafah crossing.

The source added that armed clashes and road ambushes along the road between Rafah and Sheikh Zuweid cities could pose real danger to Palestinian passengers.

Egypt could open the Rafah crossing Wednesday and Thursday, the sources added.
