Israel denies entry to members of team monitoring attacks on Palestinians in Hebron

Israeli occupation authorities have denied entry to a member of the Christian Peacemaker Teams (CPT), an organization that has monitored Israeli abuses against Palestinians in the occupied West Bank City of Hebron for almost two decades.
