PLO news agency: Israel Relaxes Movement across Hambra Checkpoint

Israel Relaxes Movement across Hambra Checkpoint
http://english.wafa.ps/index.php?action=detail&id=21249

NABLUS, December 4, 2012 (WAFA) – The Israeli army relaxed movement across
Hambra checkpoint that connects the northern West Bank with the Jordan
Valley allowing Palestinians to cross the checkpoint with their cars without
inspection, residents said on Tuesday.

The checkpoint, erected more than 10 years ago, prevented Palestinians from
moving across it unless they were residents of the Jordan Valley. Even when
residents cross, they had to undergo heavy car and body inspection.

Residents said the Israeli army opened the checkpoint for free movement on
Monday and allowed cars with Palestinian plates to go through without having
to stop for inspection.

Nablus governor Jibrin Bakri called for removing the checkpoint all together
and not just relaxing movement across it.

“Our goal is to totally remove the checkpoint and not to stop at only
facilitating movement,” he told WAFA.
