Palestinian businessmen reportedly granted permits to drive their cars inside Israel

April 10, 2017 5:42 P.M. (Updated: April 10, 2017 5:53 P.M.)
NABLUS (Ma'an) -- Israeli authorities reportedly recently granted permits to 270 Palestinian businessmen, allowing them to drive their private cars inside Israel, according to an official Palestinian source.

The source, who asked to remain anonymous, told Ma'an that the Palestinian businessmen, who hold special businesspeople cards issued by the Israeli Civil Administration, were granted permits allowing them to drive in Israeli cities in their private cars with Palestinian registration plates.

The source added that more such permits would be issued after three months.

Israeli officials did not immediately respond to a request for comment on the issue.

Palestinians in the West Bank and Gaza are subject to a strict permit regime by the state of Israel that limits their freedom of movement and largely prevents them from entering East Jerusalem, which is part of the occupied Palestinian territory, as well as Israel.
