European observers delegation arrives in Gaza

May 7, 2015 7:04 P.M. (Updated: May 7, 2015 7:04 P.M.)
CAIRO (Ma'an) -- A delegation of eight members from a European observers mission to monitor the Rafah border crossing arrived in the Gaza Strip on Thursday.

Director of the Gaza crossings Maher Abu Sabha told Ma'an that the delegation of European observers arrived in the Gaza Strip via the Erez crossing.

Abu Sabha added that there was no new information on opening the Rafah crossing, pointing out that they are in contact with the Egyptian authorities to work on opening the crossing.

The crossing agreement signed between the Palestinian Authority and Israel on Nov. 15, 2005 agreed on a delegation of European observers tasked with monitoring the border in addition to Israeli surveillance cameras at the Rafah crossing.

The Rafah crossing has been working partially for humanitarian cases since 2006. It was opened more often during overthrown president Mohammad Morsi's rule. 

The crossing has opened only twice since the start of 2015.
