JERICHO (Ma'an) -- During the week, 20,988 travelers crossed the Allenby Bridge between the West Bank and Jordan, Palestinian Authority police said Saturday.

Entering the West Bank were 9,537, including 156 foreign nationals and 48 Palestinians with Israeli ID cards, while 10,856 left for Jordan, of whom 236 were foreign nationals and 25 holders of Israeli ID cards. Meanwhile, 21 patients traveled in Palestinian ambulances for treatment in Jordan, and 75 passengers were denied entry to Jordan for security reasons, police said.
