Footage aired on state television showed dozens of bulldozers, cranes and trucks waving Egyptian flags lined up along the border to begin crossing into the Gaza Strip.

Eleven days of Israeli aggression on Gaza, erupted on May 10. More than 250 Palestinians were killed in hundreds of Israeli airstrikes in Gaza.
