Gaza, ALRAY - Egyptian authorities have been closing the Rafah crossing with the besieged Gaza Strip for the 28th day in a row.

General administration for crossing in the Ministry of Interior in Gaza stated, '' 9500 Palestinians are waiting for the crossing to reopen, so that they can go to follow their study, do medical treatment, and attend their work abroad''. 

Rafah crossing is the main border crossing that lies on the 12-km Gaza—Egypt border.

There have been frequent closures of the Rafah terminal in recent months after the ouster of President Mohamed Morsi on July 3, 2013.  Egypt has repeatedly closed the Rafah border crossing and destroyed hundreds of tunnels that Gazans used for years to import fuel, building materials, and other goods.
