CAIRO (Reuters) - Egyptian Foreign Minister Ahmed Aboul Gheit said on Sunday the Islamist group Hamas was not allowing Palestinians wounded in Israel’s attacks on Gaza to cross into Egypt for treatment.
“We are waiting for the wounded Palestinians to cross. They are not being allowed to cross,” he told reporters. Asked who was to blame, he said: “Ask the party in control on the ground in Gaza.”
Hamas has been in control in the Gaza Strip since June 2007.
