Egypt opened Rafah crossing, the only way into Gaza that doesn’t involve Israel, for three days.  The crossing has been strictly controlled and at this time Palestinians were only able to leave Egypt.  The crossing has been watched for the last ten years after Israel placed an embargo on the strip.  Last year, the crossing was only open for just over 30 days, and in 2015 for just a month and a half. Many of those crossing in the past have done so for medical care in Egypt.
