The Egyptian leader ordered the relevant authorities to keep the crossing open to ease some of the burdens of the residents of the Gaza Strip. Keeping the crossing open will allow the passage of diesel fuel, construction materials, food and medicine.

“I issued directives to take the necessary measures to keep the Rafah border crossing open throughout the holy month of Ramadan in a bid to relieve some of the burdens suffered by our brothers in the Gaza strip,” Sisi posted on Facebook and Twitter.





On May 20, a Palestinian delegation led by Diab al-Louh, the Palestinian ambassador in Egypt and permanent delegate to the Arab League, visited a number of Palestinians who were injured in the Israeli attacks on the Gaza Strip and were sent to the Naser Institute Hospital in Egypt for treatment.

Louh delivered Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas’ greetings to the brave injured, stressing that the embassy will do its best to ensure providing good treatment for them until their full recovery.

The Palestinian ambassador extended his gratitude for President Sisi for his decision to open the Rafah border crossing throughout the holy month of Ramadan to ease the burdens of the besieged people in Gaza.
