IOF troops block entry of Norwegian solidarity delegation into Jenin

IOF troops block entry of Norwegian solidarity delegation into Jenin: JENIN, (PIC)-- Israeli occupation forces (IOF) blocked on Friday the entry of a Norwegian solidarity delegation into Jenin and deported its members to Jordan.

Local sources said that three IOF patrols intercepted the vehicles carrying the delegates at Al-Hamra roadblock between the Jordan Valley and Jenin.

They said that the soldiers took the delegates to a nearby army camp and searched them before forcing them into an army bus that drove them to the Karame crossing leading to Jordan.

A spokeswoman for the delegation said that the delegates were planning to engage in a number of voluntary activities in Jenin. She added that the soldiers told them they would be deported to Jordan for having relations with Palestinian extremist organizations.
