Gaza, ALRAY - Egyptian authorities closed Rafah crossing for five days in a row, Director General of Borders and Crossings in Gaza Maher Abu Sabha said.
He called on Egypt to open the crossing permanently to reduce the suffering of the Palestinian people in Gaza.
Abu Sabha confirmed in a statement that he contacted the Egyptian side, demanding them to open the crossing for humanitarian cases.
Rafah crossing considered the main crossing for 1.8 million Gazans.
There have been frequent closures of the Rafah terminal in recent months due to Egyptian coup. Since then, Egyptian authorities opened it two or three times a month only for patients, students and people who hold residential lease agreement.
