Jordan to Permit Netureikarta Members to Move to Old City

Jordan will permit members of the extreme Orthodox Neturei Karta group in Israel to move to the Old City of Jerusalem, the Damascus Radio reported today.

The Arab broadcast claimed that several hundred Neturei Karta members have been in communication with Jordanian authorities with a view to secure permission for moving from the Israel section of Jerusalem to the Jordan-held section. It added that the Jordan Government has decided to grant such permission.
