Israel prevents Gaza academics from attending Ramallah conference

May 28, 2014 5:42 P.M. (Updated: May 29, 2014 9:31 P.M.)
GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- Israeli authorities prevented 59 Gaza-based Palestinian academics from traveling to Ramallah for a science conference, a statement said Wednesday.

The academics said in a statement that the rejection of their applications for permits to travel to the West Bank demonstrated Israel's intention to divide Palestinians.

Israel rarely grants permits for Palestinians from Gaza to visit the West Bank or vice-versa, even though both are internationally recognized as Palestinian territory.
