Israel revokes Palestinian FM’s travel permit over UN move


Associated Press

JERUSALEM (AP) — The Palestinian foreign minister says Israel has revoked his travel permit, part of a series of punitive steps against the Palestinians that Israel’s new hard-line government announced days ago. Riad Malki said in a statement Sunday that he was returning from the Brazilian president’s inauguration when he was informed that Israel rescinded a travel permit for top Palestinian officials that allow them to travel easily in and out of the occupied West Bank, unlike ordinary Palestinians. The decision highlights the tough line the current government is already taking toward the Palestinians just days into its tenure. It comes at a time of spiking violence in the occupied West Bank.
