Gaza, ALRAY - Rafah border crossing has been closed for the second day in a row for 'deteriorated security' in Sinai Peninsula.
Director of Crossings Authority, Maher Abu Sabha, confirmed the closure of the crossing on Thursday.
Egypt informed the Palestinian side on Wednesday that the crossing would be closed until further notice.
Egypt's decision came after a car bombing had targeted the headquarters of military intelligence in Egyptian Rafah, killing 11 soldiers and wounding 17 others.
During the past two days, malfunctioned computers of the Egyptian Rafah crossing, cited by the Egyptian side, led only a few dozens of the stranded people in Gaza to enter the Egyptian territory.
Since the Egyptian military had overthrown former president Mohamed Morsi, the Rafah crossing has been partially operating. About 200 to 300 passengers (4 to 6 buses) used to be allowed for departure, comparing to 1,000 to 1,200 during the rule of Mohamed Morsi.
