Palestinian medical staff stand next to a patient as she speaks to the media, calling on Egypt to open the Rafah crossing, in front of the Rafah border crossing in the southern Gaza Strip on November 6, 2014. Egypt closed the crossing into the Gaza Strip, the only route into the Palestinian territory not controlled by Israel, after Egyptian president Abdel Fattah al-Sisi declared a state of emergency on October 25, 2014, for three months, after the death of 30 soldiers in a suicide attack.
