Egypt reopened Rafah Crossing and Salah a-Din gate after closing them on August 23. After three months of banning access to construction materials for Gaza's private sector, Israel is again enabling their entry
Egypt closes Rafah Crossing and Salah a-Din Gate, reportedly in response to protests along the perimeter fence with Israel, compounding Israel’s closure of the Strip.
Israel's continued block on the entry of communication equipment has impacted the functioning of essential sectors in Gaza, including health and education.
Israel continues to abuse its control over the crossings and fishing zone to apply political pressure, preventing entrance of goods, including construction materials, cars and communications equipment
Movement continues to be highly restricted. Minor easings at the commercial crossing fall short of meeting needs and exclude construction materials.
