Swedish Aid to Gaza Border Post
The Swedish government has decided to make what are described in a press release as “extensive contributions” to the European Union’s mission monitoring the border between Gaza and Egypt.
Sweden is contributing 5 police officers and a logistics expert to the border station in Rafah, which opens Friday. In addition, Sweden is sending 26 containers configured to be used as housing and offices for the EU personnel.
Palestinian and Israeli officials agreed 10 days ago to open the border between Gaza and Egypt, provided that the EU monitor operations at the border post.
