The Rafah crossing between the Gaza Strip and Egypt reopened Monday to allow the evacuation of foreigners and dual nationals from the Palestinian territory being shelled by Israeli forces, the Hamas government said.

The terminal was opened for three days on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday last week to allow dozens of wounded Palestinians and hundreds of foreign passport-holders to cross before closing Saturday and Sunday amid a dispute over the passage of ambulances.
