Israel to open Egyptian border crossing for 5 hours to allow Israelis in

The Interior Ministry announces that the Taba border crossing from Egypt to Israel will be opened Thursday for five hours to allow Israelis back into the country.

The border will be open from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. and will only allow Israelis who have a clear coronavirus test taken within 72 hours to enter, the ministry says.

Israel’s land and air gateways had been largely closed since January 25, leaving thousands unable to return.
