PA pulls staff from Rafah border crossing into Egypt

PA pulls staff from Rafah border crossing: The Palestinian Authority has reportedly withdrawn its staff from their posts on the Ratah border crossing into Egypt, the BBC reported, citing a statement blaming Hamas for aggression towards PA employees. Following the move, reports came out that Hamas has actually regained control of the crossing. The PA took control of the crossing in 2017, after an Egypt-brokered reconciliation agreement. Egypt has closed the Rafah border crossing as a result. France24 also has the story.
