Al-Jazeera Video: Gazans wait on outcome of Egypt elections
"Egyptians take to the polls, many Palestinians hope Egypt's future foreign policy will be more sympathetic to their cause.
Hamas is an offshoot of Egypt's Muslim Brotherhood party. It is expected to do well in the elections that started on the 28th November.
There is some concern that if the Muslim Brotherhood wins in Egypt and Hamas grows stronger, human rights in the Gaza Strip could suffer.
After the Egyptian revolution, the military council announced it would re-open the Rafah border crossing with Gaza. This is the only crossing not controlled by Israel.
Many Palestinians would also like to see Egypt establish a full commercial crossing at Rafah.
