The Israeli occupation authorities have prevented 1045 Palestinians from traveling last month via the Allenby Bridge, which connects the West Bank with Jordan, citing security concerns.

Israel has arrested 22 Palestinians at the crossing point while trying to travel to Jordan during the same period.

Palestinian police said 781,000 Palestinians traveled from and to the West Bank in the first quarter of the year, including 360 medical cases, which is a 6% increase compared to last year.

Palestinians traveling via the Allenby Bridge face less restrictions compared to Palestinians from Gaza traveling to Egypt via the Rafah Crossing. Israel imposes restrictions on permits issued to Palestinians traveling between the Gaza Strip and the West Bank, and vice versa.
