The guy with sunglasses seated in front of me is young, may be 30 years old. He is the contact between Egyptian intelligence and people who intend to enter into Gaza.
Another guy, older, too with sunglasses and wearing a black coat, surely from intelligence, is listening without saying anything.
I'm inside a little office at the entrance at the Rafah gate, on the Egyptian side. I'm trying to convince them to let me get through the border.
The guy nods his head. We are so many to do this. We all want to go inside Gaza, but since Monday morning, the access is limited to the humanitarian aid, the ambulances and to the doctors, the nurses and the medics who have the right letter from their embassies or their Egyptian organization.
Outside of the gate, we are up to 50 journalists who are waiting since Monday the authorization.
The guy says: "Israelis ordered the Egyptian intelligence that they don't want no more journalists crossing the Rafah Gate. The journalists have to go to Kerem Shalom (Israeli crossing) and try to enter. We are not allowed to let you get through, only the humanitarian aid"
But most of the journalists don't want to enter into Gaza through Kerem Shalom. We know that Israel will not allow us to enter. They will choose the media they will allow.
It is a shame: this border would have its gates wide open, not only for the journalists but for the humanitarian aid, for the medicine material, for all the people who want to enter.
Israel has may be declare a ceasefire for one week, but Gaza is always an open-air big jail under the control of the Israelis with the Egyptian complicity.
They tell us it clearly.
When I called the Embassy, they also confirmed it: "From now, the Rafah gate is only a humanitarian crossing. Journalists are forbidden! Only doctors, nurses and medics are allowed to enter"
Yesterday, a group of journalists from the Egyptian Press Syndicate hold a demonstration in front of the gate and shook it, trying to enter.
Many local people are also here trying to help as they can all these people who are stuck right in the middle of nowhere.
Lorries and lorries carrying aid, like mattress, rice, water, are also waiting. Some of them are also here since days. Only 5-10 lorries an hour can get through.
I saw also may be 100 ambulances getting into Rafah in 2 days but I saw less 10 get outside.
Even people from Gaza are not allowed to enter. I met 2 men who wanted to join their families inside forbidden to enter: "Sorry, you are not medics!"
It is a shame. Please, people who are abroad, do the most you can to pressure Israel and Egypt to wide open this border!
This war against Gaza is a shame for humanity. How long will we allow this crime.
How long the 1,5 millions people in Gaza will have to stay in this jail with all the borders closed and being bombed at the will of Israel
Yesterday, when we leave the border, we were all frustrated, humiliated and really angry
Hope this hell will end soon.
