Jordan foils Israel’s attempt to deport Palestinian photojournalist from Jerusalem

 

JERUSALEM, Monday, July 22, 2019 (WAFA) – Jordan foiled today an attempt by the Israeli occupation authorities to deport Palestinian photojournalist Mustafa Kharouf, from Jerusalem, who has been fighting deportation order for a while.

Israeli authorities tried early morning to deport the photojournalist from Jerusalem to Jordan via the King Hussein Bridge (the Allenby Crossing). However, the Jordanian side confirmed that no Palestinian would be allowed to enter its territories without having the necessary papers and documents.

The occupation authorities then tried to deport him through the border crossing near the city of Aqaba, however  the Jordanian authorities refused to allow him to cross after the Israeli authorities left Kharouf in the buffer zone and returned him back to the occupied territories, foiling the Israeli attempts to deport him and bringing him back to Jerusalem to face another legal battle.
