Cement from Egypt being unloaded in Rafah, June 2015

YNet reports:
Egypt opened the Rafah crossing for three days this week and announced that it will remain open on Sunday, as well. Egypt has opened the crossing only a handful of times since the overthrow of former Egyptian president Mohammed Morsi, leaving many Gazans unable to travel outside the small coastal enclave.

According to the Ma'an News Agency, 499 travelers crossed the Rafah Crossing on Thursday, 1,136 travelers crossed on Friday and 900 crossed on Saturday. The travelers included humanitarian cases, stranded travelers, students studying abroad and others.

Egyptian authorities also allowed the passage of cement and other building materials into Rafah.
Ma'an says that some 20 trucks of cement, gravel and timber were exported into Gaza on Saturday.

As far as I know, the restrictions in place to ensure that cement doesn't get diverted to Hamas do not exist on cement that comes from Egypt.

Which means that chances are pretty good that some of these building materials will be used to build tunnels into Israel - and maybe even into Egypt.

We have lots of ideas, but we need more resources to be even more effective. Please donate today to help get the message out and to help defend Israel.
