Closed gates cause serious problems.


Rafah border gate was temporarily re-opened for Palestinians to be able to return to Gaza from Egypt.
Gaza Border Gates Director General Mahir Abu Subhe told AA on Friday that the gate would remain open on Saturday.
Closed gates cause serious problems for Gazan patients, travellers and students who want to continue their education, said Subhe.
Egypt had closed Rafah crossing on Sunday following the attack which killed 16 Egyptian soldiers in Egyptian-Israeliborder post.
