The Egyptian government has accused Gaza’s Hamas rulers of collaboration with the ISIS-related terrorists in the Sinai, which have been clashing with Egyptian forces—hence the closing of the border crossing and the suspension in Egypt of Palestinians wishing to return to Gaza.
The stranded passengers are demanding that al-Shubaki intervene, expressing their anger over the silence of the Palestinian embassy in Cairo.
Naturally, the PA embassy is owned and operated by Hamas’ enemies in Ramallah, who are less than eager to make life easier for their nemesis. So the Palestinian passengers stay stranded.
The sane Palestinian passengers have also “expressed their trust in Egypt’s President Abdul Fattah al-Sisi, ” and “praise his role in supporting the Palestinian people and their just Cause, ” Alresalah reported.
Because, let’s face it, they’re in al-Sisi’s dog house right now, so they must behave.
