Humanitarian aid is Piling up Near Egypt’s Border with the Gaza Strip

Sudan Events – Sumaya Sayed

Convoys of humanitarian aid piled up near Egypt’s border with the Gaza Strip on Sunday, unable to enter the Palestinian enclave being bombarded by Israel, witnesses told AFP.
The Rafah crossing – the only passage in and out of the Gaza Strip not controlled by Israel – has been closed since Tuesday after three Israeli air strikes on the Palestinian border post within 24 hours. On Saturday, an American official confirmed to AFP that Egypt and Israel had agreed to allow American citizens to leave Gaza via Rafah. However, Egypt has imposed conditions on the deal.
Officials refused for “the crossing to be designated for only foreigners to cross,” according to Egyptian news channel Al-Qahera News, which has ties to Egyptian intelligence agencies.
