Egypt opens border with besieged Gaza only after Israel attack

Egypt opened its border with besieged Gaza Strip on Tuesday, letting Palestinians cross until further notice amid a storm of international criticism of Israel's blockade of the enclave, officials in Egypt and Gaza said.

1.5 million Gazans live under heavy Israel siege and Egypt insists on not to opening the only Gaza border crossing in a move condemned by around the world in protests, leaving Gazans desperate to digging tunnels underground and risking their lives since 2007.
