European observers monitored the Rafah crossing point into Gaza since 2005 until Hamas took control of the enclave in 2007 and the Gaza Strip became subject to an almost continuous Israeli blockade.

The radical Islamist group Hamas, which controls the Gaza Strip, on Sunday voiced its support for the return of EU observers to the Rafah crossing point on the border with Egypt.

French Foreign Minister Bernard Kouchner said on Sunday that the European Union planned to put forward a proposal to send its observers to monitor traffic into Gaza and ensure that no weapons were getting into the blockaded enclave along with humanitarian supplies.

Looks like the EU may be sending observers to the Rafah crossing point. Hopefully this will have a positive impact on the area. The observers will be on the watch for weapons, and also will make sure humanitarian aid will come through. Im not sure when the observers will be there, since the EU is just putting through a proposal for it at the moment.
