Palestine: Israeli forces detain 12 workers near Jenin

Israeli forces today detained 12 Palestinian workers near the Barta’a village gate, to the west of Jenin in the occupied West Bank, as they were attempting to enter Israel for their workplace .

A large number of Palestinians, especially construction workers, have to pass through Barta’a checkpoint every day in order to reach their workplace, facing extreme overcrowding and often waiting for hours in line due to inspection procedures as every person must pass through metal detectors one-at-a-time.

Israeli severely restricts Palestinians’ freedom of movement through a complex combination of approximately 100 fixed checkpoints, flying checkpoints, settler-only roads and various other physical obstructions.
