The Palestinian Centre for Human Rights (PCHR) condemns the opening of heavy gunfire in an unjustified manner throughout the Gaza Strip yesterday, celebrating the winning of Dr. Mohammed Mursi, the Freedom and Justice Party candidate, of the presidential elections in Egypt. As a result of the heavy fire, 1 Palestinian was killed and 19 others were wounded. It should be noted that hundreds of thousands of Egyptians celebrated the winning of Dr. Mursi in al-Tahrir Square, but not a single bullet was fired there.

The Palestinian Center for Human Rights (PCHR) welcomes the decision of the Egyptian authorities to open all land and air passages for Palestinians to and from the Gaza Strip. This decision reflects the spirit of revolution and change in Egypt, shows Egypt’s major role in supporting the Palestinian people, and illustrates the respectable efforts made by the Egyptian leadership to achieve Palestinian national reconciliation.
The Palestinian Centre for Human rights (PCHR) is concerned about the continuing state of chaos on the Egyptian-Palestinian border. The Centre believes the current situation does not provide a solution regarding civilians' rights to safe and unhindered travel into and out of the Gaza Strip, especially as Rafah International Crossing Point remains officially closed.
PCHR calls upon all parties involved, including the Israeli Occupation Forces (IOF), and the international community, to resolve the crisis at the Rafah Crossing.
At approximately 02:00 on Wednesday January 23rd, a group of Palestinians detonated explosives in order to destroy sections the wall lying between the southern Gaza Strip Rafah border with Egypt. Several hours later, thousands of Palestinians poured over the border into Egypt.
PCHR is deeply concerned by the continued humanitarian and health situation of about 3000 Palestinians who are still stuck on the Egyptian side of the Rafah International Crossing Point. They are waiting to return to Gaza and have not been able to so since Israeli Occupying Forces (IOF) close the Crossing Point on Sunday 31st October 2004.
