Record Traffic for Allenby Bridge Crossing

A record 12,000 Muslims used the Allenby Bridge Crossing between Israel and Jordan between Monday and Tuesday under a relaxation in travel restrictions ahead of the Islamic holy month of Ramadan, which begins on Wednesday.

The crossing will be open 24 hours a day during the first two days of the dawn-to-dusk fasting.
