IslamNews – Egypt on Tuesday opened its Rafah border crossing with the Gaza strip until further notice, Egyptian sources said, a move described as an incentive for reconciliation between the main Palestinian factions, meeting in Cairo.

The Palestinian embassy in Cairo said Egypt had decided to open the crossing as a result of “intensive and bilateral talks between the Palestinian and Egyptian leaderships to facilitate the passage of Palestinians to and from the Gaza Strip”.

Egypt had been opening the Rafah crossing for only a few days at a time to allow stranded travellers to pass.
