Israeli forces have prevented a delegation of youths from Jenin, who were representing a Quaker youth group, from going to the city of Ramallah for youth activities.

In a phone call with Ma’an News Agency, the delegation reported that the Israeli forces at the Za’atara barrier prevented the delegation from entering Ramallah, claiming that the delegation did not have a permit to cross the barrier and adding that the city of Jenin is a "closed military area" today.

It was also reported that the delegation included youths ranging in age from 14 to 17 years and they were heading to Ramallah in order to be put in contact via video conference with a youth group in the US State of Minnesota with the aim of establishing relations between Palestinian and American youths.
