Israel bans West Bank journalist from travel

GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- Israeli authorities prevented a Palestinian journalist from leaving the West Bank to visit relatives in Jordan, a detainees' center said Thursday.

Nawwaf al-Amer told the Palestine Center for Studies that Israeli forces refused to let him cross the Allenby Bridge between West Bank and Jordan, citing "security reasons."

Al-Amer, 50, added that he had crossed the border earlier this year to perform a pilgrimage to Saudi Arabia.

He was released from an Israeli prison in 2012 and has been detained several times.
