Cairo - Egypt Indefinitely Closes Rafah Crossing With Gaza Strip
Cairo - Egypt has closed the Rafah border crossing with the Gaza Strip on Friday indefinitely.
Maher Abu Sabha, director of border crossings in Gaza says Egypt told Hamas of the indefinite closure.
The closure comes after Islamist gunmen staged multiple attacks on security forces in Egypt’s troubled Sinai Peninsula early Friday, two days after the army overthrew elected Islamist President Mohamed Morsi, security sources and state television reported.
The security sources said a soldier was killed and two were wounded when a police station in Rafah on the border with the Gaza Strip came under rocket fire. The police post is close to the local headquarters of military intelligence.
