Egypt to Open Gaza Borders in Both Directions Tuesday

Palestinians in the Gaza Strip can travel everywhere through Egypt starting from Tuesday, an official from Gaza's Hamas government said Sunday.

The official, speaking on condition of anonymity, said that Egypt informed Hamas that Rafah crossing point will be open in both directions, a few days after it has been open for people trapped in Egypt.

An average of 300 Palestinians would be allowed to leave Gaza via Rafah everyday, the official added.'
