JERICHO (Ma'an) -- Palestinian police over the past week detained 12 Palestinians either wanted by the Palestinian Authority or banned from travel, police said.

All 12 were detained while attempting to travel or enter Palestine via the Allenby Bridge crossing with Jordan, a statement released by the the Public Relations and Media Department of the Palestinian police said.

The statement also said that some 24,000 Palestinians and visitors passed through the Allenby crossing during the past week.

The statement added that 17 people were turned away from the Israeli side of the Allenby crossing over the past week for alleged security purposes.
