Hamas slams PA for deserting border crossing, says it will further isolate Gaza

Hamas has condemned the Palestinian Authority’s decision to stop manning the Rafah border crossing with Egypt until further notice, Hebrew-language media reports.

The terror group ruling Gaza says the move — intended as a protest against the arrest of hundreds of members of the rival Fatah faction — will deal a blow to Egyptian efforts to achieve intra-Palestinian reconciliation, and will isolate the Strip from Egypt.
