Mufid al-Hassayna (front), minister of housing and construction in the Palestinian consensus government, speaks during a press conference after the handing-over ceremony of Rafah crossing point in the southern Gaza Strip, on Nov. 1, 2017. The Palestinian Authority was on Wednesday handed over control on all the borders crossing points, including Rafah crossing with Egypt, Erez and Kerem Shalom border crossing points with Israel. Handing over the crossing points to the Palestinian consensus government is an implementation of an Egyptian-brokered reconciliation agreement reached between Hamas and President Mahmoud Abbas's Fatah Party in Cairo in Oct. 12.
