PressTV – Egypt closes Rafah crossing: Palestinian ministry |

Palestinian authorities say Egypt has closed the Rafah border crossing amid ongoing Israeli atrocities in the besieged Gaza Strip.”The ministry feels disappointed that Egypt took this step,” said Iyad al-Bozum, the spokesperson for Gaza’s Interior Ministry on Friday, referring to the closure of the main crossing to Gaza. “Egypt’s decision shows disregard for the suffering of the injured and other travelers. The Palestinian government had prepared ambulances and traveler buses with the expectation that the crossing would remain open on Friday as Egyptian officials previously declared,” Bozum stated.
