Al-Jazeera: Egypt to open Rafah to treat injured

From PalPress (autotranslated):
The "Al-Jazeera" channel published the news this afternoon that Egyptian authorities decided to allow the opening of the Rafah border crossing between the Gaza Strip and Egyptian territories to receive the wounded of escalating Israeli aggression on the Gaza Strip and to import medicines and medical equipment to hospitals [in Gaza.].
This news, if true, will not be publicized very much. The claims that Gaza hospitals are overcrowded and that there is a shortage of medicines is much more dramatic.

Neither will the media remind their consumers that Hamas in recent months has, at least twice, confiscated medicines meant for Gaza hospitals.
