A man, who is hoping to cross into Egypt, shouts as he holds his passport and other family members’ passports while he waits at the Rafah crossing between Egypt and the southern Gaza Strip July 16, 2014. Egyptian authorities decided to open the Rafah border crossing to Gaza last week to allow wounded Palestinians to receive medical care in Egypt, and to allow holders of foreign passports, including Egyptians, to leave the Strip, border officials in Gaza said. Under President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi, Cairo has secured closures on the Gaza border, increasing economic pressure on Hamas from a long-running Israeli blockade. Israel resumed its air strikes in the Gaza Strip on Wednesday, a day after holding its fire in deference to an Egyptian-proposed cease-fire deal that failed to get Hamas militants to halt rocket attacks.
