Egyptian President Abdel-Fattah al-Sisi decided on Thursday to keep Rafah Crossing between Egypt and Gaza in Palestine open during Ramadan, Xinhua news agency reported.
Rafah and the Kerem Shalom crossing into Israel are the only two points through which goods can go in and out of the Hamas-run territory.
Sisi's Twitter account said the opening of the crossing would "alleviate the burdens of brothers in Gaza".
Ramadan started on May 17 and is expected to end on June 14. "Not only will Rafah's extended opening contribute to de-escalating the explosive atmosphere in the Strip, it will also help ease the humanitarian burden on Palestinians in Gaza".
The Erez crossing, the other exit for Gazans, is managed by the Israelis, who put severe limit on the number of people who can pass through it.

The Rafah crossing is the Gaza Strip's only gateway to the outside world not controlled by Israel, but Egypt has largely sealed it in recent years, citing security threats. Previously, Egypt would open the crossing for three consecutive days from time to time, allowing only medical patients, students and those with permits for Egypt to cross.
