Gaza, Alray - Egyptian government  kept Rafah border crossing closed for the fourth  day under a security pretext.

Rafah border crossing ,which is the only way in and out of the blockaded   coastal  enclave of  1.7 million Palestinian residents,  was opened in 2011 following the ouster of former  Egyptian president Hosny Mubarak, whose administration opposed Hamas in Gaza, and helped Israel to enforce the blockade on it.

Palestinian official in Gaza said that a representative of the Egyptian army told the government in Gaza that the Rafah Crossing was closed until further notice. Since the start of the preparation for the counter-revolution activities, the Egyptian army have tightened measures on Palestinian travellers entering and leaving Gaza through the crossing.
