TULKAREM, (PIC)– The Israeli occupation authority (IOA) blocked the travel of second deputy speaker of the Palestinian legislative council (PLC) Hassan Khreisha via Karame crossing to Jordan.

Khreisha told Quds Press that he was supposed to travel to Jordan on Wednesday en route to Morocco to attend the Euro Mediterranean parliamentary assembly, which is attended by MPs from 42 countries.

The Tulkarem MP said that he was detained for five hours at the crossing before he was forced to turn back home without being given a reason for the step.

He said that the IOA has been blocking his travel for more than five years, charging that the act fell in line with the constant targeting of PLC members as the IOA does not want the world to hear their voice that would convey the truth about what is happening in the Palestinian land.

Khreisha regretted the fact that the Palestinian Authority was not budging to protest such acts, and questioned the fact that the IOA does not block the PA officials who travel to attend negotiations or give concessions.
