EU BAM Rafah

Daily work at the Rafah Crossing PointDaily work at the Rafah Crossing Point

What is EU BAM Rafah?

After Israel's unilateral disengagement from the Gaza Strip in summer 2005, the Agreement on Movement and Access was signed by the Palestinian authorities. It contains a series of agreed principles for passing the Rafah (Gaza) crossing point. Under the agreement, the crossing point was supposed to be under the joint control of Israel, the Palestinian Authority and a third party: a role that was taken by the European Union following the Decision of the Council of the EU taken on 1 November 2005.
