GAZA, PALESTINOW.COM — Gaza’s Interior Ministry declared Monday that Rafah crossing will restore work on Tuesday only for one direction.
“The Egyptian side has informed us that the Rafah crossing will open on Tuesday for arrivals to Gaza and goods movement,” the Ministry said in a brief statement.
Earlier Monday, employees of the Interior Ministry have retaken control of the Rafah Crossing between the besieged Gaza Strip and Egypt in a bid “to avoid a vacuum.”
The move came one day after the Ramallah-based Palestinian Authority (PA) suddenly withdrew its personnel from the terminal.
Palestinian factions have decried the PA move, warning that the withdrawal would deepen the Palestinian rift.
