Egypt closes Rafah border with Gaza over Hamas

Egypt has closed its Rafah border crossing with the Gaza Strip starting Monday in protest of Hamas’ recent behavior, according to several media reports.

Egypt reopened the Gaza-Egypt Rafah border crossing in both directions a week ago to assist Palestinians stranded at the crossing in entering Egypt on humanitarian grounds.

Israel and Egypt also restrict cross-border movement with Gaza, which is controlled by Hamas, citing security concerns.

Rafah is the only way out of Gaza for Gazans who want to travel to other countries via Egypt.
