Gaza, ALRAY - Malfunction in computer network at the Egyptian side of the Rafah crossing disrupted operation, Director General of Border Crossings in Gaza said citing the Egyptian authorities.

On Saturday morning, the crossing was opened after closure lasted for eight days.
General Administration of Border Crossings said Saturday in an earlier statement to ALRAY “the crossing will be open to those booked to travel on the 8th, and 9th of September, as well as those turned back in the past openings of the crossing, and stuck students,”
