Truth does not matter for “Israel”. Buttons Do. To mute.

GAZA, (PIC)– Director of the interior ministry’s immigration bureau in Gaza Wisam Al-Ramlawi said the Palestinian authorities in Ramallah city have not sent any passport books to the Gaza Strip so far.

According to Safa news agency on Sunday, Ramlawi denied claims on finding a solution to this problem and affirmed that the Ramallah authorities still refuse to issue passports for many citizens for alleged security reasons.

He said the best solution is to supply Gaza immigration bureau with its needs of passport books and to lift the ban imposed on issuing passports for those who allegedly have security issues.

The immigration official stressed that the Palestinians in Gaza desperately need passports to travel for medical and study purposes and their suffering should be addressed urgently.

Ramlawi made his remarks in response to member of the national committee for public freedoms Mustafa Al-Barghouthi who said on Sunday that the issue of passports was addressed and solved.

Many Gazans believe that the issue of their passports cannot be solved because of the security cooperation between the Palestinian authority and the Israeli occupation as well as the security files they prepare together against the Palestinians in Gaza in particular.
