20 Palestinians denied travel last week at Allenby crossing

Days of Palestine -

The Israeli occupation authority (IOA) prevented last week 20 Palestinian passengers from traveling through Allenby (King Hussein) border crossing with Jordan.

As always, those passengers were denied travel by the IOA for unexplained security reasons, according to the Palestinian Authority police on Saturday.

However, about 36,000 Palestinians and foreign passengers as well as ambulances carrying 11 patients were able to travel in both directions of the crossing during the same week, the police added.

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.
