Patient wait

, April 29, 2014

Palestinians hoping to cross into Egypt wait at the Rafah crossing between Egypt and the southern Gaza Strip on April 29. Egyptian authorities partially reopened Rafah border crossing, Gaza's main window to the world, on Tuesday for two days, Palestinian border officials said. Since the overthrow of Egyptian President Mohamed Mursi in July 2013, the authorities have largely kept the crossing closed, only opening it partially for limited periods of time, on humanitarian grounds.
