AMMAN — The Times of Israel reported that the King Hussein Bridge will begin operating round-the-clock starting in April of 2023, after a trial program was completed earlier this month, according to Khaberni.اضافة اعلان

The crossing’s director ordered its staff to prepare to operate round-the-clock from Sundays at 8am until Fridays at 3:30pm, and on Saturdays from 8am until 3:30pm, according to the Israeli newspaper. An expanded schedule will be released on April 2 next year.

A trial was conducted from November 6 to November 10 to confirm the ability of crossing staff to operate the crossing round-the-clock.

This followed years of fixed-hour operations, causing long queues for Palestinians who find it difficult to obtain permits to travel to and from Ben Gurion Airport, thus leading them to travel to and from Amman.
