Egypt to open border crossing for injured Palestinians

The Egyptian government announces that the Rafah border crossing will be opened Wednesday to allow a limited number of injured Gazans to receive medical treatment in Egypt. Cairo has yet to announce how many Palestinians will be allowed into the Sinai Peninsula, or what time the border crossing will open.

Gaza health officials say over 150 Palestinians have been injured in Israeli airstrikes since the beginning of Operation Protective Edge.
