FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
by the Campaign for the Right to Entry,
The Campaign for Right to Entry/Re-entry will be holding a press conference on the new developments in Israel’s denial of entry policy
The Campaign for Right of Entry/Re-entry will provide the notice recently issued by the Israeli Authorities that changes Israel’s policy of denying entry to foreign nationals traveling into the occupied Palestinian territory (oPt). The notice outlines new procedures regarding access to the West Bank for foreign nationals.
The Campaign regards this as a rare moment where the Israeli Authorities acknowledge in writing the severe humanitarian crisis brought on by Israeli policies of denying foreign nationals the right to family reunification and entry to the oPt. Yet the crisis directly affecting over 45,000 foreign nationals remains unresolved.
The Campaign will present an analysis of the recent developments .
First hand stories from foreign nationals denied entry and renewal since the new policies were announced will be heard – private interviews will be available upon request.
The Jerusalem Center for Legal Aid will present a legal analysis of the new document and policies.
