Gaza is facing a fuel crisis with serious snowball effects due to Cairo’s decision to close the Rafah crossing and tunnels along the border due to the continued unrest in Egypt. In addition to the coming fuel crisis, thousands of people have been stranded by the border closure, unable to travel to and from Gaza.
Amina al-Arqan was packing when she heard the news about the Rafah crossing’s closure. She was subsequently forced to extend her stay in Gaza. Arqan had been visiting her siblings, and now wants to go back to her family in Egypt.
