Hamas hands over Egypt border crossing

Hamas hands over Egypt border crossing”

The national reconciliation government has confirmed its readiness to take full responsibility over the Gaza Strip border crossings, beginning November 1st, said Hussein al-Sheikh, head of the Civil Affairs Authority, in a press release on Tuesday.

At the Rafah crossing, Palestinian and Egyptian flags were flying, with large pictures of Palestinian Authority president Mahmud Abbas and Egyptian leader Abdel Fattah al- Sisi.

Nazmi Muhanna, the Palestinian Authority's top official for border crossings, formally received control of the Rafah crossing with Egypt from his Hamas counterpart.

The Rafah crossing, the only entry and exit point between Gaza and Egypt, was handed over to the PA during a ceremony attended by senior figures from Hamas, Fatah and representatives of the Egyptian government.

He said Fatah and Hamas are going to hold another meeting to discuss the next step in the implementation of the reconciliation agreement signed in Cairo in 2011, particularly holding elections, reforms in the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO) and security in Gaza, among other issues.

"The Palestinian government announces that it cancelled all the old measures of collecting taxes and customs, adding "from now and then, there is no yellow, green or red, all of us are Palestinians and we will be united", he said".

Multiple previous reconciliation agreements have collapsed.
