Egypt opens border with Gaza to move wounded Palestinians to hospitals

Egypt opened its only crossing with the Gaza Strip to receive wounded Palestinians on Sunday, a day after 54 people were killed in IDF operations against terrorists firing rockets from the territory, said a medical official. Egypt sent 27 ambulances to the Rafah crossing to transfer 150-200 wounded Palestinians to hospitals in the Sinai Peninsula and other cities on the mainland, said Emad Kharboush, a medical official at el-Arish hospital near the Israeli border. "We have mobilized all our efforts to receive and treat our Palestinian brothers in our hospitals," Kharboush told The Associated Press.
