The border between Egypt and Rafah, a city south of the Gaza Strip, reopened on a limited basis today, allowing fewer than 500 people to cross.
This opening occurred after an agreement between Israel, Egypt and Hamas.
This is the first time the crossing has been cleared since the conflict began at the beginning of the month. The passage authorization is mainly aimed at allowing war wounded to receive treatment in hospitals in Egypt.
Ambulances have been seen transporting injured Palestinians, including children, leaving Gaza towards Egypt. It is estimated that more injured people, around 80, will also leave the Palestinian territory throughout the day.
