UN demands Egypt and Israel to open crossings with Gaza

WASHINGTON, (PIC)– The UN on Wednesday called anew on Egypt and Israel to open Gaza border crossings and facilitate the entry of goods and individuals from and into the besieged enclave.
“We urge the Egyptian government and Israel to open their crossings with the Gaza Strip and allow the free movement of people and goods from and into Gaza,” UN spokesman Farhan Haq told a news conference. 
“We called on Tuesday for necessarily opening the Gaza Strip crossing, and we said then that we meant Egypt and Israel to do so,” Farhan added.
The spokesman was answering questions posed by journalists about the UN’s silence on Egypt’s closure of its crossing with Gaza for more than four weeks.
