RAMALLAH, (PIC)– The Israeli occupation authority (IOA) blocked the travel of Hamas MP Dr. Nasser Abdeljawad via Karame crossing from the West Bank to Jordan after detaining him for a few hours.

Dr. Abdeljawad told the PIC that he was held for two hours at the crossing then an Israeli intelligence officer came and told him that he was banned from travel.

The MP said that the ban is part of the IOA policy of harassment against the Hamas representatives and an attempt to prevent them from contacting the outside world.

The lawmaker was traveling to Jordan to visit relatives.

The Hamas parliamentary block said that the travel ban reflected “Zionist arrogance and terrorism”.
