The Israeli occupation authority (IOA) on Tuesday prevented eight Palestinian passengers from traveling through Allenby (King Hussein) border crossing with Jordan.
The Palestinian Authority police said those passengers were denied travel by the IOA for unexplained security reasons.
However, about 11,079 Palestinians and foreign passengers were able to travel in both directions of the crossing during the same day, the police added.
Allenby crossing, also known as al-Karama, is a bridge that spans the Jordan River and connects the West Bank with Jordan.
The bridge is the sole designated exit and entry point for West Bank Palestinians traveling in and out of the Israeli occupied territories.
