Israeli Regime's Zionist Forces Burn Down Rafah Crossing's Departure Hall: Sources

(MENAFN- Nam News Network) GAZA, Jun 18 (NNN-WAFA) – The Israeli regime's Zionist army, yesterday, burned down the departure hall, on the Palestinian side of the Rafah crossing, rendering it out of service, Palestinian security sources said.

Video clips circulated on Facebook, showed the departure lounge, and other facilities at the crossing, were completely burnt down.

The Zionist Forces said, they are reviewing the matter, without elaborating further. The Palestinian side of the crossing, between Gaza and Egypt, has been under the regime's control, since May 7.

In a statement, Hamas described the burning of the departure building and other facilities inside the Rafah crossing, as a“criminal act and barbaric behaviour of the Zionists, within the framework of a continuing genocide against the Palestinian people in Gaza.”

The statement considered this behaviour a“clear war crime, warranting broad international condemnation.”

Fatah official, Munther Al-Hayek, condemned the brutal Zionist army's move in a release, saying that,“the burning of the reception and departure building at Rafah crossing, is clear evidence of the occupation's intention, to isolate the sector from the outside world, and maintain full security control over it.”– NNN-WAFA
