JERICHO (Ma’an) -- Palestinian police detained 35 Palestinians at the Allenby Bridge between the occupied West Bank and Jordan throughout the week, as some 46,000 Palestinians passed through the crossing, according to statement released by Palestinian police on Saturday.

A total of 23,275 Palestinians left the West Bank, while 23,483 crossed into the occupied territory from Jordan during the week, according to the police.

The statement added that 46 Palestinians were detained by the police at the border for “unresolved legal proceedings.”
