A freed Palestinian detainee from Safareen village, near Tulkarem in the northern part of the West Bank, was barred from entering Jordan although he carries a Jordanian nationality.The detainee, Abdul-Rahman Abu Haniyya, spent 24 months in detention. After he was freed, he attempted to return to Jordan but was denied entry by the Jordanian authorities.

The Islamic Movement in Tulkarem slammed the Jordanian authorities and stated that Jordan carried recently repeated violations against Palestinian residents attempting to enter Jordan, especially those who carry both Palestinian and Jordanian Nationalities and were detained by Israel.

Abu Haniyya was studying at the Science and Technology Jordanian university before he was arrested by the Israeli army, and is only one year away from graduation.
