Rafah passenger terminal

According to Haaretz, the Quartet's Envoy to the Disengagement, Mr James Wolfensohn is currently trying to reach a solution between the Israelis and the PA over the return passage of people and goods from Egypt into Gaza following the Israeli withdrawal.

The Israelis are insistent that people and goods enter Gaza via a proposed new terminal inside Israel at Kerem Shalom. The PA will concede the passage of goods, but not people who they insist should enter Gaza via Rafah under European supervision, if so required. Wolfensohn is proposing that Palestinians are allowed to use Rafah for a trial period of 2-3 months, albeit under the control of Israeli surveillance cameras.
