Israel Outraged Over Rafah Reopening

Israeli vice Prime Minister Silvan Shalom has voiced outrage at Egypt's decision to permanently reopen the Rafah border crossing into the Gaza Strip.

“It's a worrying development... The reopening of the Rafah crossing could allow the passage of arms and terrorists and we must prepare for important changes both in Egypt and at the regional level,” AFP quoted Shalom as saying on Israel's public radio on Sunday.

On Thursday, Egyptian Foreign Minister Nabil al-Arabi announced plans to permanently open the previously blocked Rafah crossing within 10 days.'
