Medical and administrative teams are stationed for facilitating the passage of the injured to hospitals for treatment, said official sources at the crossing.

Egypt had exceptionally opened the crossing on May 16 to enable people stranded on the two sides to cross and to deliver humanitarian aid to Gaza residents, the sources added.

As per Egyptian President Abdel Fattah El-Sisi’s directives, Egyptian engineering equipment and staff has crossed to the Gaza Strip through the Rafah crossing, Extra News reported on 4 June.

This comes within the framework of the Egyptian efforts to alleviate the suffering of the Palestinian citizen in the strip, restore the normal life of people in Gaza and start the reconstruction process.

It is also part of the Egyptian commitment announced by Sisi to quickly improve the living conditions of the Gaza dwellers.
