Egyptian authorities have decided to re-open the Rafah crossing three days a week starting next week, the director of the pedestrian crossing said Thursday.

Israel imposes a siege on Gaza Strip for years.

"The Egyptian authorities informed us that the crossing will be re-opened in both sides on Saturdays, Mondays and Wednesdays," Maan news agency quoted Ayoub Abu Shaar, the director of the Palestinian side, as saying in a statement.

After gunmen killed 16 Egyptian border guards in early August, Egypt closed its border with the Gaza Strip and sealed smuggling tunnels that provide a lifeline to the besieged territory.
