JERICHO (Ma'an) -- Palestinian police over the past week detained 34 Palestinians wanted by the Palestinian Authority (PA) or otherwise banned from traveling at the Allenby Bridge crossing between the occupied West Bank and Jordan, according to a statement released Saturday by the public relations and media department of the Palestinian police.

The statement added that some 16,099 Palestinians and visitors left the West Bank into Jordan through the crossing, while 15,445 arrived from Jordan.

Also during the week, coordination was made for 15 sick Palestinians on both sides of the crossing to pass though with Palestinian ambulances.

The statement added that 40 travelers were turned away from the Israeli side of the crossing during the week for alleged security reasons.

Israeli forces routinely detain Palestinians at the crossing, as Palestinians must cross the border to access the Amman International Airport in order to travel abroad.
