Video released by the Sinai Foundation for Human Rights shows “repair work and paving the road between the Egyptian and Palestinian sides” at the Rafah crossing into Gaza, according to a post from the group on X, formerly Twitter.

Egyptian authorities on Thursday started removing cement blocks at the entrance of the crossing in preparation for its opening, several drivers told CNN.

Egyptian Red Crescent aid trucks have been lined up on the highway in Al-Arish, preparing to move to the crossing once it is open, according to journalist Asmaa Khalil, who was close to the border, on Thursday.

Located in Egypt’s north Sinai, it’s the sole border crossing between Gaza and Egypt. It falls along an 8-mile (12.8-kilometer) fence that separates Gaza from the Sinai desert.

Egyptian President Abdel Fattah El-Sisi had agreed to open it after speaking with US President Joe Biden, but it is no longer expected to open on Friday, multiple sources told CNN.
