A Palestinian woman kisses her son after she returned to Gaza through Erez crossing
A Palestinian woman kisses her son after she returned to Gaza through Erez crossing July 31, 2007. Crossings into the Gaza Strip from Israel and Egypt were closed to most traffic after the June 14 Hamas takeover of the enclave of 1.5 million people, resulting in shortages of food and other essentials. But this week Israel began allowing Palestinians stranded in Egypt to return to Gaza via the Jewish state, in a deal agreed with Egypt and Abbas' Western-backed government but criticized by Hamas.
