Israeli forces prevent Palestinian activist from entering Jordan

Jan. 30, 2014 9:47 P.M. (Updated: Feb. 1, 2014 8:16 P.M.)
HEBRON (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces prevented a Palestinian popular committee coordinator from traveling to Jordan via the Allenby Bridge on Thursday, the coordinator said.

Ratib al-Jbour told Ma'an: "I was heading to Jordan, and then to France to participate in solidarity campaigns with our people and show the true image of how we suffer as a result of the occupation and settlers."

Israeli forces cited "security reasons" for preventing him from crossing to Jordan, al-Jbour said.

But he said the limitations on his freedom of travel were due to the impact Palestinian solidarity campaigns were making around the world.

Al-Jbour coordinates popular committees against settlements and the Israeli separation wall in areas south of Hebron and east of Yatta.

Palestinians and pro-Palestinian activists are often held up or denied entry at borders controlled by Israel.
