Gaza, ALRAY – Newborn baby died Saturday after he made his way to life Friday on the Egyptian side of the Rafah crossing.

Ministry of Interior reported medial resources as saying that Mohamed al- Mashharawi was born Friday at night at the Egyptian side of the Rafah border crossing after his mother waited long without being allowed to cross into the Gaza Strip.

“The child’s mother Iman Mashharawi coming from Algeria on a visit to Gaza was had to pass the night at the Egyptian crossing’s cafeteria before giving birth to Mohammed on Saturday,” the sources said.

Palestinian citizen al-Mashharawi gave her child in late at Friday’s night who died this morning at the crossing.

Up to the moment, one bus, three ambulances, and a number of Ministry of Religious Affairs coordinators for ‘pilgrimage to Mecca’ season have been allowed in the Egyptian territories.

The crossing should have been open today, Saturday, for those booked to travel on the 8th, and 9th of September, as well as those turned back in the past openings of the crossing, and for stuck students.

Malfunction in computer network at the Egyptian side of the Rafah crossing disrupted operation, Director General of Border Crossings in Gaza said, citing the Egyptian authorities.
