The Allenby Crossing (King Hussein Bridge), which connects Jordan with the West Bank, will open for 24 hours on Sunday 14 January, 2018, the Public Security Directorate (PSD) announced on Thursday.

The PSD said that the crossing will be open to Palestinians, pilgrims and travellers for 24 hours, and for tourist busses, private cars and United Nations vehicles until 9pm.

The crossing will resume its usual opening hours on Monday.

In September 2017, the PSD announced that the crossing’s new opening hours will be from 8am until midnight from Sunday to Thursday, and from 8am until 3pm on Friday and Saturday.
