The Transportation Ministry confirms that preparations are underway to have the Allenby crossing between the West Bank and Jordan stay open 24/7 beginning next month.

In a statement to The Times of Israel, the ministry says that comments made earlier today by US Ambassador to Israel Tom Nides about the crossing are accurate.

“Yes, we are making preparations with the Airports Authority to open on the date the ambassador said,” the ministry says, confirming a start date for the move announced by Nides of October 24.
