Egypt on Saturday reportedly reopened, in both directions, the Rafah crossing with the Gaza Strip after it had been closed for a week, Palestinian officials at the border told Ma'an news agency.

Last Saturday, Egypt closed the crossing after allowing Palestinians to return from the hajj pilgrimage in Saudi Arabia. Prior to that, the crossing had been open for a week.

Ariel Ben Solomon contributed to this report.
