Egyptian authorities refuse entry of construction material via Rafah terminal
Egyptian authorities refuse entry of construction material via Rafah terminal
The Egyptian authorities have turned down a request by the Arab doctors union (ADU) to send construction and other relief materials to the Gaza Strip via the Rafah border terminal.

Munir Al-Barsh, the representative of the ADU in Gaza, told the PIC late Saturday that the ADU office in Cairo asked the Egyptian authorities to allow the entry of 220 tons of food aid and 200 tons of cement and other construction material into Gaza but the request was denied.

He explained that the aid shipments were currently stored in El-Arish city awaiting Egyptian permission to send them to Gaza, adding that the rejection was not justified after Egyptian president Hosni Mubarak issued orders to open the crossing both ways until further notice.

Cairo had opened the crossing after the Israeli massacre against the Freedom Flotilla, carrying aid to Gaza, in the international waters, and allowed entry of power generators and exit of Palestinian citizens over the past five days.
