Border InSecurity


The border between Gaza and Egypt, currently monitored by Europeans - oh yeah, that's working out well:
Palestinian policemen angry over the killing of a fellow officer stormed the Gaza-Egypt border crossing Friday, firing shots in the air and forcing European monitors to close the border and flee, Palestinian and European officials said.

About 100 policemen entered the Rafah compound and took up positions alongside border patrol officers at the customs section of the crossing, Palestinian security officials and witnesses said.

The European observers - responsible for monitoring the crossing and ensuring the terms of an Israeli-Palestinian agreement are upheld - fled the area, officials said.
The officials are now in Israel, in the Kerem Shalom military base, awaiting the moment when the Palestinian policemen leave so they can go back to work.
