Israel bars dozens of Palestinians from travelling abroad

Ramallah, Aug. 2 (Petra) — Israeli occupation forces on Saturday prevented dozens of Palestinians from the cities of Hebron and Tulkarim from travelling outside the West Bank through the al Karamah crossing. Many Palestinians said they work in Arab Gulf states and voiced fear that they might lose their jobs due to the Israeli step. The reason behind the Israeli measure was not known and there were no comments by any Israeli official about the development.
