Rafah, 18 Rabi’ul Awwal 1438/18 December 2016 (MINA) – The Egyptian authorities on Saturday evening allowed the access of modern cars into the blockaded Gaza Strip via the Egyptian-run Rafah border crossing.
According to local sources, 40 trendy cars were allowed a safe access into a car sales company in the blockaded Gaza Strip.
The move has been the first of its kind since the opening of the Rafah border crossing with Gaza.
The Egyptian authorities unblocked the Rafah border crossing as of Saturday morning for an exceptional three-day opening on both sides.
Gazans have often launched cries for help over the tough Egyptian-Israeli blockade imposed on the coastal enclave.
The frequent border closures by Egypt, in conjunction with a decade-long Israeli siege on the coastal territory, have made life unbearable for Gazans.(T/P008/R07)
