A total of 11 former West Bank residents returned to their homes during the first week following Israel’s announcement that re-entry permits issued last year would be extended to Jan. 31, 1969. Six crossed the Allenby Bridge Friday. A total of 6,989 re-entry permits of 20,000 issued, remain unused.
