      The latest from Rafah is as follows:
      recieved via email


      The Egyptian Intelligence has told Khalil to go through the Kerem
      Abu Salam (Kerem Shalom) crossing. Khalil then spoke with the
      Egyptian Red Crescent, who offered their help in coordinating with
      Israel, as Israel controls the Kerem crossing.

      However, Khalil has decided that the offer to cross through Kerem is
      not sufficient. The point is to break the siege, and by consenting
      to cross through Kerem, Khalil feels he is acquiesing to Israel's
      decision to allow supplies in when and if Israel wants.

      Instead, Khalil will wait for later opportunities to cross via
      Rafah, as originally intended.

      Sunday will see a demonstration at the Rafah crossing, organized by
      Lebanon's ex-PM, Selim El Hoss, and joined by Arab and EU MPs and
      solidarity supporters. It is hoped that after this demonstration,
      and after a Friday Aug 8 conference between other Arab and EU
      officials, and with the sailing of the Free Gaza boats, as well as
      with the great and building support from Scotland MPs and
      government, that Israel will consent to opening the crossing.

      Khalil will try to give a press conference in Cairo updating on the
      situation up until this point, including the procedures followed,
      measures taken, support shown, offers from the Eygptian authorities,
      and plans/intentions for the future.
