Cairo. Egypt has closed its main border leading to the Gaza Strip in the wake of tensions with the militant group Hamas. The officers provided this information. This is the first time since the beginning of this year that Rafah Crossing has been closed during a working day (Rafah Border Crossing 2021). Egypt kept the border open during the 11-day war between Israel and Hamas in May.
According to Egyptian officials, the closure of the border leading to the Gaza Strip is part of Cairo’s efforts to enforce a ceasefire between Israel and Hamas. However, it is not yet clear how long this limit will remain closed. An Egyptian official said the purpose of closing the border to Gaza was to put pressure on Hamas. Egypt is angry that Hamas’ indirect talks with Israel have not progressed in the right direction.

Apart from this, efforts are also being made to negotiate with the Palestinian factions. In the wake of the Israeli-Egyptian blockade, Hamas organized a protest on Saturday, during which violence erupted. A large number of Palestinian citizens demonstrated near the Israeli border (Israel Border Palestines). At least 24 Palestinian civilians were injured in firing by Israeli troops, two of whom are in critical condition.

Egypt has been a mediator between Israel and Hamas
Significantly, Egypt has been a major mediator between Israel and Hamas for many years. Egyptian intelligence chief Abbas Kamel visited Israel last week to discuss a ceasefire deal with Israeli Prime Minister Naftali Bennett. Even when the fighting between Israel and Hamas lasted for 11 days, this border remained open. It was assumed that the two sides could negotiate, so this was done. This fight lasted in May, in which attacks were carried out from both sides and hundreds of people died. (agency input)
