Governor: Israel to ease travel in northern West Bank

Dec. 4, 2012 11:48 P.M. (Updated: Dec. 6, 2012 9:32 P.M.)
NABLUS (Ma’an) -- Israeli authorities have decided to cancel a permits system at the al-Hamra checkpoint, one of the most important crossings in the northern West Bank, the governor of Nablus said Tuesday.

Jibrin a-Bakri said the Palestinian side was informed that Israel will be setting up new facilities at the checkpoint.

The change means Palestinians will no longer have to have permits to cross, and will not have to get out of their vehicles at the inspection point, al-Bakri said.

The governor called on Israel to remove the checkpoint entirely.

The barrier separates part of the Jordan Valley and northern West Bank from one another.
