The Palestinian embassy in Egypt faced criticism from travelers stranded at Cairo’s international airport throughout the uprising.
CAIRO (Ma’an) — Palestinian students will be allowed to enter Egypt if they are enrolled for the spring semester, officials said Thursday.

Palestinians have been banned from entering Egypt since Feb. 7, as authorities struggled to hold onto power before the regime fell.

The Palestinian ambassador to Cairo, Barakat Al-Farra, said his embassy intervened to secure entry for students this year.
