Fri, Apr. 21, 2017
CAIRO- 21 April 2017: After 12-day closure, Egyptian-Israeli Taba border crossing was re-opened from Israel on Friday, Ofir Gendelman, Israeli Prime Minister's spokesperson for the Arab media posted on his official Twitter account.

Israeli authorities closed the border a day after militants in Egypt bombed two Coptic Christian churches, killing dozens of worshipers on Palm Sunday, on April 9.

It was scheduled to open at the end of the holidays. However, it remained closed until Thursday, stated Israeli Counter-Terrorism Bureau on Wednesday after an attack targeted a security checkpoint near Saint Catherine’s Monastery in Egypt in South Sinai, killing one policeman and injuring four others on Wednesday evening.
