7 Palestinians denied travel at Allenby crossing

Days of Palestine -

The Israeli occupation authority (IOA) on Tuesday prevented seven Palestinian passengers from traveling through Allenby (King Hussein) border crossing with Jordan.

The Palestinian Authority police said that those passengers were denied travel by the IOA for unexplained security reasons.

However, about 5,298 Palestinians and foreign passengers were able to travel through the crossing on the same day, the police stated

Allenby crossing, also known as al-Karama, is a bridge that spans the Jordan River and connects the West Bank with Jordan.

The bridge is the sole designated exit and entry point for West Bank Palestinians traveling in and out of the Israeli occupied territories.
