Rafah to open?


We’re seeing reports on Xinhua and AFP which seem to say that as part of the Egyptian-brokered 24-hour lull (tehdiyeh, like that from 19 June) they will open the Rafah border crossing to let in food aid supplies imminently.

No word on what or when – we’ll keep you updated.

Why can't they open it regularly? A one off just releases a bit of high pressure steam from the "pressure cooker".
Humanitarian relief is absolutely essential in preventing a very bad situation deteriorating into an unmitigated disaster.
