Hamas: Egypt briefly opens Rafah crossing

Egypt has opened its border with Gaza, the first time this year.  According to Hamas, the Rafah crossing was opened Saturday, but will stay open only for two days. It’s the only crossing point between Egypt and the Gaza Strip. A few hundred Palestinians are expected to pass through, and join family reunion during the time. Hamas seized Gaza in 2007 and soon after, Israel and Egypt imposed a blockade. Egypt only opens the border intermittently, and humanitarian aid and some goods enter Gaza from the Israeli side.
