CAIRO: The Rafah border crossing will be opened in both directions starting from Aug. 17 for three days, an official source told the state news agency MENA Saturday.

In October 2014, the crossing was closed indefinitely by the Egyptian authorities in both directions after coordinated attacks that killed 27 armed forces personnel in Sheikh Zuwayed.

The crossing, which is the only way for Palestinians to move in and out of the Gaza Strip, was last opened in June to allow students and humanitarian cases to enter Egypt.
