Egypt may close again the Rafah border crossing in both directions on Thursday, according to Hamas government, reported Maan News Agency.
Later, however, a Hamas spokesman said that the Gaza had not been "officially informed" that the crossing would be closed."
Gazans live under heavy Israel siege for a long time and Egypt still insists on not to opening the only Gaza border crossing in a move condemned by Muslims around the world in protests, leaving Gazans desperate to digging tunnels underground and risking their lives.
Egypt is currently negotiating a long-term, sustainable ceasefire between Israel and Hamas in the Gaza Strip.
