Egyptian authorities reopened the Rafah Crossing on Wednesday for Palestinian pilgrims who are returning home.
Security sources said the border crossing would be open from Wednesday, October 7 at 10:00 am until October 10 in one direction, into the Gaza Strip.
About 760 Palestinian pilgrims have arrived at Cairo Airport on three EgyptAir flights, the soures mentioned. They will then board tourist buses headed to the Rafah Crossing.
Last week, 480 Palestinian pilgrims crossed into Gaza through the Rafah Crossing.
