Egyptian authorities kept the Rafah border crossing open Sunday to receive wounded and stranded Palestinians and allow humanitarian relief assistance into the Gaza Strip.

According to official sources, Rafah, the only crossing point between Egypt and Palestine's Gaza Strip, will remain open on both sides to allow entry of relief materials into the Gaza Strip for the reconstruction of the impoverished Palestinian enclave after the widespread destruction due to last month’s Israeli onslaught.

A number of ambulances were on hand at the crossing to receive injured Palestinians and those in critical condition and transport them to Egyptian hospitals for treatment.

The crossing has been open on an exceptional basis since 16 May following directives of President Abdel-Fattah El-Sisi.
