GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- Palestinian officials closed the Rafah border crossing between Egypt and the Gaza Strip on Sunday, the terminal's director Ayyoub Abu Sha'ar said.
Closed out of frustration, Abu Sha'ar said the Egyptian authority's 'mechanism' at the terminal was unclear, citing Egypt's decision to close the crossing on Saturday without coordinating with Palestinian officials.
According to a security source in Egypt, the crossing was closed for works which were to have been completed on Friday and efforts were underway to allow through Palestinian buses.
Egyptian security and state television later said that the crossing had reopened, but only for pedestrians, as the works prevented the passage of vehicles.
Palestinian officials said afterward that the border was still closed but Hamas police had moved Palestinian would-be travelers away from the frontier fence.
