    across or over the border

    "Hundreds stream over Gaza border"

    Sometimes I see border collocated with "across".

    Is there difference between "across" and "over" in terms of collocating with "border"?

    Thanks!

    Re: across or over the border

    No difference for me, but there should be "the" before "Gaza".

    Re: across or over the border

    This looks like a news headline — hence the omission of 'the'.
