Jerusalem24 – Starting today, Wednesday, the Israeli  forces imposed new measures on Palestinians when crossing the Al-Jalama checkpoint, located north of Jenin, after large banners were erected this morning at the checkpoint with new instructions in Arabic and Hebrew written on it. This took place after the opening of the checkpoint, which remained closed after the Gilboa 6 escaped from the nearby Gilboa maximum security prison and the Jewish holidays.

Eyewitnesses reported that when they headed this morning to the checkpoint, they were surprised by the large plaques published by the checkpoint administration that read “new conditions for crossing the checkpoint.” The conditions are, “identity card, driver’s license, and passport.” The occupation stipulates that without these documents and that they are valid, citizens will not be allowed to enter or leave the city of Jenin.
