  1. Egypt opens Gaza border permanentlyAn elderly Palestinian man waits to cross into Egypt through the Rafah border terminal in the southern Gaza Strip on May 26, 2011.Egypt has reopened its Rafah border with the Israeli-blockaded Gaza Strip, allowing people to cross freely for the first time in four years following the downfall of ex-President Hosni Mubarak.Egypt opened the border crossing where many Palestinians gathered on Saturday in eager anticipation of the move to head southward. Cairo says the Rafah crossing will be open from 9:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. local time every day except Fridays and holidays. Jubilant Palestinians also expect Cairo to allow the importation of services and goods including construction materials into the impoverished coastal sliver, a Press TV correspondent reported. Women, children as well as men aged over 40 will be allowed to enter Egypt freely, but men aged between 18 and 40 will still require a permit. Gaza Strip’s sole gateway to the outside world will remain closed for trade. However, the opening of the border crossing is expected to provide a major boost to the enclave’s economy. The former Egyptian regime was under pressure from the public and some Arab countries for refusing to open the crossing even during the Israeli deadly offensive into Gaza in 2008, in which nearly 1,400 people lost their lives, mostly women and children. The 22-day Israeli offensive deteriorated the already dire humanitarian crisis in Gaza as many civilian infrastructures were knocked out during the invasion. Gazans have ever since been facing harsh conditions with minimal supply of food, water, fuel, and electricity. Egypt kept the crossing largely closed after Israel imposed a blockade on the coastal strip in 2007. The siege has left nearly one and a half million Palestinians in dire need of basic supplies. Enforcing the Israeli blockade on the Gaza Strip, the regime of the ousted, US-backed ruler of Egypt, Hosni Mubarak, had refused to open the Rafah crossing since June 2007. The reopening of Rafah is likely to rattle the Israeli regime, which earlier said it was “worried” by Egypt’s plans to reopen the crossing. The UN has called the siege illegal and repeatedly demanded that it be lifted. The new Egyptian government has been keen to review its policy on Gaza since Mubarak was overthrown in February.

  2. Egypt permanently opens Gaza border crossing, eases its 4-year blockade of Palestinian stripRAFAH, Gaza Strip — After four years, Egypt has permanently opened the Gaza Strip’s main gateway to the outside world.The move to lift most travel restrictions on Gaza residents brings long-awaited relief to the territory’s Palestinian population and a significant achievement for its Hamas rulers. But it raises Israeli fears it will be easier for militants to go in and out of Gaza.The first busload of passengers crossed into Egypt on Saturday morning at the Rafah terminal, where about 400 Gazans awaited.Egypt and Israel have maintained a blockade over Gaza since 2007 to weaken Hamas following its violent seizure of the area. But after the ouster of Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak in February, Egypt’s new military rulers decided to ease the blockade.Copyright 2011 The Associated Press. All rights reserved.

  3. ‘Rafah border opening to ease siege’Sat May 28, 2011 4:13AMA Palestinian man waits before crossing into Egypt through the Rafah border crossing, southern Gaza Strip, Thursday, May 26, 2011.The new Egyptian government says that the permanent opening of the Rafah border crossing will ease the Israeli siege on the suffering Gazans.Egypt’s Ambassador to the West Bank Yasser Othman said that by opening the crossing, 70 percent of the population in the Gaza Strip will be able to cross into Egypt without visa or security permission, a Press TV correspondent reported from Gaza. “The new move Egypt has approved will end Gaza’s siege,” Othman said, adding that the crossing is scheduled to be opened on Saturday. However, the Press TV correspondent said that “This does not mean that the complete blockade will be lifted.” This is only lifting a part of the blockade, he said, adding that, “We still have commercial crossings, other entries are closed, the marine blockade by the Israeli navy, and we also have the air blockade.” “It is very important that the people realize this is not lifting the blockade,” he further explained. “This is the first step of lifting the blockade,” as people can cross the border for medical purposes, education and even travel to other countries, seeking jobs,” he went on to say. Once the crossing opens, people between 18 and 40 will require security clearance to pass, he added. Ties have improved with the Hamas government in Gaza since the fall of Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak and formation of the new government in Cairo, he went on to say. The United Nations has called the Israeli siege illegal and has repeatedly demanded that it be lifted. The border has remained largely closed since June 2007, when Israel imposed a tight blockade on the Gaza Strip. FTP/AGB/MGH/HRF

  4. http://www.channel4.com/news/egypt-opens-gaza-border-crossingEgypt relaxes restrictions at its border with the Gaza Strip, allowing people to cross freely for the first time in four years.Egypt and Israel closed their borders with Gaza when Hamas took control in 2007. Humanitarian organisations and foreign governments have criticised the blockade, with Prime Minister David Cameron describing it as a “prison camp” last year.Now, the new military regime in Egypt, which took control of the country after the fall of President Hosni Mubarak, has reversed his unpopular policy and opened the Rafah border.Already, around 400 Palestinians have gathered at the crossing, many carrying large suitcases.Restrictions remainWhile the restrictions have eased, men aged between 18 and 40 years will still need a permit to cross, and trade is prohibited. Women, children and men over 40 are allowed to pass freely.Previously, only around 300 people were allowed to cross on a daily basis. But Israel has criticised the border move, saying it raises security concerns. Last year, Israel eased restrictions on goods entering Gaza but there are still severe shortages and humanitarian concerns in the territory.One of the first people to cross was Ward Labaa, a 27-year-old woman leaving Gaza for the first time to seek medical treatment in Cairo, the Associated Press reported.Many believe the relaxation of the crossing conditions to Egypt is a signal of the changing dynamics in the Middle East after the Arab Spring sparked popular uprisings across the region.

  5. May 28, 2011In border opening, Gazan relief but Israeli worryIn border opening, Gazan relief but Israeli worry(AP) RAFAH, Gaza Strip (AP) — The opening of the Gaza Strip’s main gateway to outside world this weekend provides a long-awaited relief for its population and hands the Palestinian territory’s Hamas rulers a significant achievement. But it highlights the deterioration in Egypt’s relations with Israel since protesters forced Hosni Mubarak from office in February.Egypt’s plans to open the Rafah crossing on its border with Gaza on Saturday have raised Israeli worries that Hamas militants will be able to move more freely in and out of the long blockaded territory.The decision by Egypt, announced soon after Mubarak fell and the military took power, was a dramatic reversal. Mubarak, who like Israel considered the Iran-backed Islamic militants of Hamas to be a threat, had cooperated with Israel in imposing a blockade on Gaza that greatly restricted movement. But the help in a closure that wrecked Gaza’s economy and deeply hampered the lives of its 1.5 million Palestinians brought Mubarak heavy criticism from Egyptians and from many in the Arab world.The blockade, meant to weaken Hamas and prevent the movement of militants and weapons across the border, has allowed only a trickle of Gazans to leave the densely populated coastal strip.Egypt gave Gazans permission to cross only under particular conditions, such as students, business and people in need of medical care, and even they had to wait weeks or even months for the Egyptian permits. The crossing was frequently closed completely for periods. Gaza’s other border is with Israel, and people are allowed to cross only in rare cases.In recent months, Egypt has allowed some 300 Gazans to enter Egypt each day, far short of the number of people who want to travel. With Saturday’s opening, there will be no official limit on the number who can leave Gaza, though Gaza officials say Egypt has told them that the crossing will likely be able to handle about 1,000 travelers a day. Still, that number would ease the huge backlog of people waiting to go.”I hope that this news will lead to some change in our ability to travel freely,” said Saadi Samir, a 33-year-old businessman who said he has been waiting for five weeks to get a permit to travel through Egypt to Dubai. “The new arrangement on the border is a good step, but we still need to see more. All we are looking for is free movement like anyone else in this world.”The new system will not resolve Gazans’ travel woes completely.Women and males younger than 18 or older than 40 will still have to register for Egyptian permits to leave, but the permits won’t be restricted to certain classes of people and the process for issuing them will be much faster than in the past. However, men between 18 and 40 must now obtain an Egyptian visa, which make take weeks.It also will not ease the other pressures of the embargo. Rafah is a passenger terminal, and Israel controls Gaza’s cargo crossings. While Israel allows most consumer goods into Gaza, it still restricts exports as well as the entry of badly needed construction materials, saying they could be used by militants. Israel also enforces a naval blockade aimed at weapons smuggling.Omar Shabban, a Gaza economist, said a bustling border crossing would nonetheless give an important boost to the area’s economy, since it would allow thousands of Gazans living abroad to return home for summer vacations. “This will inject a lot of money into the tourism and transportation and other business sectors,” he said.In the wake of Egypt’s announcement on the crossing, Israeli and American officials have expressed concerns that Hamas will exploit the opening to bring weapons and fighters into Gaza.Egyptian officials say they have security measures in place to ensure people don’t carry weapons through the Rafah crossing. All baggage is put through X-ray machines, and all those entering and exiting are put through personal searches, a procedure which imposes practical limits on the number who can cross each day depending on the number of Egyptian security personnel.In any case, the crossing itself is not needed to get weapons into the territory. Throughout the blockade, enterprising smugglers have long moved weapons, consumer goods and people in and out of Gaza through a network of tunnels along the border. Gaza militants now have military-grade rockets that can — and have — hit cities in southern Israel.Israeli defense officials say Egypt’s anti-smuggling efforts have all but ended in the chaos following Mubarak’s ouster.Amos Gilad, a senior Israeli Defense Ministry official, said Friday that Israel was waiting to see to what extent the Egyptians would allow free movement. Israel’s primary concern, he told Channel 2 TV, is that military training personnel could cross to instruct Hamas fighters.”One trainer who tells them how to set up the rockets and how to use them is equal to a large quantity of weapons,” Gilad said.He said Israel’s ties with Egypt’s interim leadership were “stable and trusting, including in talks on issues like the border crossing.”The White House said Thursday that the U.S. has questions about how Egypt will ensure that weapons don’t enter Gaza. Ben Rhodes, an aide to President Barack Obama, said U.S. officials had asked Egypt for clarification.Egypt’s decision reflects a change in its attitude toward Israel since Mubarak’s downfall. At least outwardly, the military council running the country until parliamentary and presidential elections later this year has shown more interest in warming ties with the Palestinians than with maintaining the Mubarak-era close adherence to Israel, with whom Egypt shares a three-decade-old peace agreement.Last month, the Egyptian regime successfully brokered a reconciliation between Hamas and rival Fatah, which runs the West Bank government. The two had been sharply at odds since 2006, and Hamas defeated Fatah’s forces in Gaza in a spurt of fighting in 2007, and years of mediation by Mubarak’s regime had failed to bring results.With details of the reconciliation still being worked out, Hamas will be in charge of the Palestinian side of the Rafah crossing. Nonetheless, Fatah official Nabil Shaath praised the move as an important step for Palestinian unity.”This is a very great decision for all of our people in Gaza,” he said. “The issue is
