The opening of the crossing came on the heels of Palestinian protests in Gaza against the Israeli blockade.
Convoy of engineers and building equipment reaches Gaza where recent Israeli attacks caused heavy damage that officials estimate will cost $150 million to fix.
Three convoys transporting a total of 263 Palestinians cross into Rafah in the restive North Sinai region, sources say. Meanwhile, Egyptian Foreign Minister Sameh Shoukry says "concessions must be made in order to achieve peace."
The Rafah border crossing with the Palestinian territory is mostly shut but opens at regular intervals. This would be the longest single opening in years.
