In a humanitarian effort, the Rafah border crossing is set to open its gates on Wednesday to facilitate the transfer of numerous Palestinians who have sustained injuries in Gaza to access essential medical treatment in Egyptian hospitals. This development has been confirmed by Egyptian medical and security sources, as well as a Palestinian border official.

The General Authority for Crossings and Borders in Gaza disclosed that Egyptian authorities have given their approval for 81 Palestinians to depart Gaza for the purpose of receiving medical care.

Furthermore, Egypt’s North Sinai governor has affirmed the planned opening of the Rafah border crossing on Wednesday, underscoring the importance of providing necessary healthcare to those in need from Gaza.

According to an official statement from the Egyptian city of Arish, medical teams will be stationed at the Rafah crossing to promptly assess the conditions of the arriving patients from Gaza. Subsequently, these medical experts will decide on the most suitable hospitals for their treatment.
