Palestinians return to the Gaza Strip through the Erez crossing with Israel in the northern Gaza Strip, 30 July 2007. More than 100 Palestinians began crossing into Israel at the Al-Oja/Nizana cargo crossing south of the Rafah border terminal between Egypt and the Gaza Strip almost two months after Hamas' takeover of the seaside strip triggered the closure of the border with Egypt.
