The Israeli Occupation Forces (IOF) prevented over the past week 23 Palestinians from travel via Karama border crossing with Jordan.

According to a press release by the Palestinian police on Saturday, those Palestinian citizens have been banned from travel for security reasons, without providing clear explanations.

However, nearly 30,000 Palestinian passengers were allowed to travel through the crossing in both directions.

Karama crossing also known as the King Hussein Bridge and by Israel as Allenby is a crossing 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.
