Gazans prepare for Ramadan anxiously amid unrest in Egypt following the military coup.

While the first action of the military appointed interim Egyptian government was to close the Rafah border gate and eleven tunnels connecting the Gaza strip and Egypt, the Gaza Strip began to feel fuel, food and water shortages.

The Rafah Border Gate and tunnels are Gaza's the only door to the entire world due to the Israeli blockade.

Most of Gazans fulfill their basic needs in its biggest bazaar named Saha. Shopkeepers of the bazaar said that they had sold the goods that they brought before border gate and tunnels closed.

They also added that they were afraid famine may start in Gaza if the Rafah Border gate would not be opened in a short time.

While in Turkey and other Muslim countries, the bloody Egyptian coup is being protested, Gazans keep their silence worrying the Rafah Border Gate may not be opened.
