The second batch of 527 Palestinians stranded in Egypt near the border with the Gaza Strip were relocated Monday to an Egyptian-Israeli border terminal en route to Gaza, Egypt's official MENA news agency reported.

Hani al-Jabbour, the first secretary of the Palestinian embassy and a liaison officer in Cairo, confirmed that the new batch of the stranded Palestinians were sent to Aloja checkpoint one day after the first 101-member batch entered Gaza in conformity with an agreement reached between Egypt and Israel.

More coordination is under way to send some 6,000 stranded Palestinians in batches to Israel via Aloja and then back to the Gaza Strip in a few days, according to MENA.

Thousands of Palestinians, who left the Gaza Strip through Rafah crossing before Hamas took control of the strip in mid June, were not able to go back home after the crossing was shut down.

International aid groups have repeatedly called for a speedy solution to the crisis of the stranded Palestinians, who have been living in harsh conditions.
