Abbas: Border crossings built on Gaza land

Even after its pullout from the Gaza Strip, Israel will be occupying some Palestinian land in the coastal strip, Palestinian Authority Chairman Mahmoud Abbas said in remarks published Saturday. Abbas spoke just two weeks before Israel was to withdraw its last soldiers from Gaza, following the demolition of 21 Jewish settlements there. The Palestinians contend that several border crossings were built by Israel on Gaza land and should be moved as part of the pullout.
