Hamas has given control of border crossings to the Palestinian Authority (PA) according to the BBC.

The crossing is set to be in full operations on November 15th.

“Rafah has largely been closed since 2007, when Israel and Egypt tightened their blockades of Gaza in response to the Hamas takeover and in an attempt to prevent attacks by militants,”according to the BBC

Israel and the US identify Hamas as a terrorist group. The US wants nothing but a good situation to come from this and Israel refuses to work with Palestine if they rely Hamas.
