The Israeli occupation authorities (IOA) blocked 41 Palestinian citizens during the past week from travel outside the occupied West Bank through al-Karama crossing.

The Palestinian Authority police said in a statement in Ramallah on Saturday that the IOA banned 41 Palestinians from travel for “security reasons”.

According to the statement, 32,000 citizens passed through al-Karama crossing in both directions during the past week, and the police managed to detain 42 wanted criminals at the crossing.

Al-Karama crossing is the only crossing connecting the occupied West Bank with the outside world through Jordan.
