Palestinian security sources reported that the Rafah Border Crossing, in the southern part of the Gaza Strip was reopened on Wednesday morning.

The Rafah crossing, which is the only way for Gaza residents to connect to the world,  was officially opened and a bus full of Gaza residents, who were stranded at the Egyptian side of the border for several months, crossed into the Gaza Strip.

The sources added that crossing will be open for the Palestinian residents stranded on the Egyptian side to enable them come back to Gaza, and for humanitarian and medical cases

The Israeli army closed the Rafah border crossing when it started the "Summer Rains" military offensive in the Gaza strip six month ago.

Since then, the crossing was opened for limited hours on a number of days over the past six months.
