Egypt: Gaza blockade a failure, border stays open


news.yahoo.com

An Egyptian security official declared the blockade of Gaza a failure Monday and said his country will keep its border with the Palestinian territory open indefinitely.

For the time being, Egypt is only allowing a very restricted group of Gazans to leave the territory, including medical patients, students attending foreign universities and those with residency abroad. In keeping the passenger terminal in the border town of Rafah open continually, rather than sporadically as before, Egypt is helping reduce the backlog of Gazans with the required permits waiting to get out.

I hope Egypt eventually decides to open the border for all types of aid, but at least for the time being those in Gaza in need of medical attention can actually seek it.

If this crossing were to actually open entirely it would make the bloody Israeli "block aid" of Gaza even more embarrassing I think.
