Gaza students protested Egypt's continued closing of the Rafah crossing yesterday.

It seems clear that Hamas is behind this protest, as it was covered prominently in Hamas media and the students there are school-age, not the college students who have lost their opportunities to go to university.

Most protesters quoted in the article still blamed Israel for Egypt's closure.

Iran's PressTV is the only outlet to cover this in English, where they note that the Rafah crossing has only been open for three days this year and only 1500 people were allowed out of Gaza through Rafah. 

Egypt has been unapologetic over the closure, claiming somewhat disingenuously that this is necessary for security. 

Israel allows hundreds of people to leave Gaza every day. Today, some 200 Gazans were allowed to go to the Temple Mount.

Also, the number of trucks of goods from Israel  to Gaza has increased this year from an average of 450 to about 550 daily.
