The Israeli occupation authorities last week prevented 11 Palestinians from the West Bank from travelling abroad via al-Karama crossing, the only outlet connecting the West Bank with the outside world through Jordan.

The Palestinian police in Ramallah said in a press statement on Saturday that the passengers were denied travel for unexplained security reasons.

According to the police, 34,000 Palestinians were able to pass through al-Karama crossing in both directions during the reported period.

Following its occupation of the West Bank and Gaza Strip, Israel established al-Karama crossing (Allenby), which is 55 kilometers west of Amman, basically for the travel of West Bank Palestinians.

Another commercial crossing was added later on called Sheikh Hussein Bridge, 90 kilometers north of Amman, but it later started to be used for the travel of Israelis, foreign tourists and Palestinians of the 1948 occupied territories who have Israeli IDs.
