Israel has refused to include the reopening of the Rafah border crossing in a possible Gaza truce agreement, Hamas Prime Minister Ismail Haniyeh said Thursday. Haniyeh told reporters in the Strip that the opening of the crossing was an essential component of any agreement. "Any agreement must include a timetable for the opening of the Gaza crossings and a list of goods that can be transferred through them," he said.
