Egyptian entry rules eased for Palestinians
Tuesday 24 July 2012
Egypt is allowing freer entry for Palestinians, in an unprecedented move that eases long-imposed travel restrictions, particularly on Gazans, Egyptian and Palestinian officials said yesterday.
Until now, any Palestinian under 40 entering or leaving Gaza was "deported" upon arriving in Egypt – taken in security escorts from the airport directly to the Gaza border to ensure they spent no time in Egyptian territory. The new measures allow Palestinians to cross through Egypt on their own arrangements, allowing them to stay for up to 72 hours.
