Israel publishes a procedure for processing applications for passage from the Gaza Strip to the West Bank: The new procedure essentially puts an end to the passage of Palestinians from the Gaza Strip to the West Bank. Through the procedure, Israel explicitly declares that Palestinians whose registered address is in Gaza have no right to be or live in the West Bank (02) 627 1698   (02) 627 6317
