The United States has contacted Israel about the plight of 3,000 Palestinians stranded on the Egyptian side of the Gaza Strip border. “Since the situation arose, we have been in touch with senior officials from Israel, Egypt and the Palestinian Authority,” Adam Ereli, the State Department spokesman, said Monday. “The burden and hardship being imposed upon Palestinians is problematic, and I think we are working with all the parties to help resolve it.”
