HEBRON (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces prevented a Palestinian popular committee coordinator from traveling to Jordan via the Allenby Bridge on Thursday, the coordinator said.

Ratib al-Jbour told Ma'an: "I was heading to Jordan, and then to France to participate in solidarity campaigns with our people and show the true image of how we suffer as a result of the occupation and settlers."

Israeli forces cited "security reasons" for preventing him from crossing to Jordan, al-Jbour said.

But he said the limitations on his freedom of travel were due to the impact Palestinian solidarity campaigns were making around the world.

Al-Jbour coordinates popular committees against settlements and the Israeli separation wall in areas south of Hebron and east of Yatta.

Palestinians and pro-Palestinian activists are often held up or denied entry at borders controlled by Israel.

Gee, maybe it has to do with his al Aqsa Martyrs membership. What a clown, "it's because of the impact Solidarity is having around the world." Hahaha did it occur to this genius that Israel is the one allowing ISM to run around Areas B and C and Sector H2? If Israel needed to stifke ISM it would ban foreign participation in political demonstrations. ISM is appreciated by Israel because it accomplishes nothing and keeps 10 volatile municipities from doing any damage.
