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.”

Ambulances carrying 21 patients also reportedly crossed the Allenby Bridge after Palestinian security officials coordinated with Israeli liaison offices.

Israeli authorities also denied 78 Palestinians entry to Jordan for alleged security reasons, the statement said.

Meanwhile, Israeli forces on Saturday detained a Palestinian man from the Duheisha refugee camp on Saturday as he attempted to cross the Allenby Bridge.
