Palestinian officials denied entrance to Bab al-Shams outpost

The IDF has denied a Palestinian delegation entrance to the Palestinian outpost Bab al-Shams, an official says.


Palestinian negotiator Saeb Erekat told AFP that the security forces have barred him from entering the makeshift town, which is located in the contested E1 area in the West Bank. The delegation also included Hanan Ashrawi, a member of the PLO executive committee, and Ahmed Majdalani, the Palestinian labor minister. (Elior Levy and AFP)
