Palestinian leaders hoped a recently signed reconciliation agreement would lead to Egypt reopening its border with the Gaza Strip Wednesday, but those hopes seem to have been dashed. Egypt has kept the crossing, vital to Gaza's nearly 2 million residents, mostly shuttered since Hamas seized the territory from Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas' Palestinian Authority in 2007 . The PA is supposed to retake full civil control of the Gaza Strip by Dec. 1 .Palestinian leaders had said they hoped one result of the deal would be the opening of Egypt's Rafah border with the Gaza Strip on Nov. 15 .Separately, the Israeli army Wednesday destroyed the home of Nimer al-Jamal, a Palestinian who killed two Israeli security guards and a border police officer outside the Har Adar settlement in the occupied West Bank.
