Rafah Crossing

News: The Rafah border crossing in southern Gaza has gained global attention as Palestinians are attempting to leave Gaza in anticipation of a possible Israeli attack as part of the ongoing Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

• The Rafah Border Crossing or Rafah Crossing Point is the only crossing point between Egypt and the Gaza Strip. It is located on the Gaza–Egypt border, which was recognized by the 1979 Egypt–Israel peace treaty.
• The crossing was managed by the Israel Airports Authority until Israel dismantled its settlements in Gaza on 11 September 2005 as part of a disengagement plan. It subsequently became the task of the European Union Border Assistance Mission Rafah (EUBAM) to
monitor the crossing.

Other two crossings to move in and out of Gaza:
• Erez is located in the north and is used by people in Israel.
• Kerem Shalom, in the south, which is exclusively for commercial goods.
• Both Erez and Kerem Shalom controlled by Israel are currently closed.
