39 Palestinian Detained


Israeli police and border forces took into custody, on Thursday night, 39 Palestinian workers near the Israeli resort city of Eilat, according to Israeli media.

that they were all taken to Israeli interrogation centres for questioning.

Palestinians from the occupied West Bank are banned from working in Eilat, though tens of thousands have been given permits to work in other Israeli cities, according to Days of Palestine.

All Palestinian work permits issued by the Israeli occupation include the phrase “allowed to enter Israeli excluding Eilat.”

Palestinians who seek to work in occupied Israeli cities need a special work permit usually granted by the Israeli Civil Administration, in coordination with the Israeli Ministry of Labour.
