As reported in Abu Ali Express, Egyptians at Rafah are allowing Gazans passage for the price of $5,000 per head.

Bribes at the border aren’t new. Al Jazeera reported in 2019 that Palestinians in Gaza were paying brokers up to $4,000 in bribes to jump the long waiting lists and exit quickly via the Rafah crossing to Egypt.

GazaPassage is working to ensure Egypt, and other nations and organizations around the world help non-combatants leave Gaza for humanitarian purposes.

Abu Ali Express reports of HAMAS’ dissatisfaction with the high cost of passage. HAMAS’ complaints suggests it wants a price break to escape Gaza. Egyptian guards were unavailable at the time of publishing on any new pricing initiatives.
