Extract

On 28 October 2009, Ms Berlanty Azzam, a 22-year-old Palestinian student at Bethlehem University, attended a job interview in Ramallah. On her way back home she was stopped by Israeli soldiers at a check-point near Bethlehem. She was asked to present her ID card, and then questioned about her stay in Bethlehem. The soldiers told Azzam that since her ID card showed her registered address as being in the Gaza Strip, she could not stay in the West Bank without a permit from the Military Commander. Ms Azzam explained that she moved to Bethlehem from Gaza in 2005, when no permit was required in order to move between Gaza and the West Bank, the two parts of the Occupied Palestinian Territory (OPT). Since then she had tried unsuccessfully to change her registered address in the Palestinian Population Registry from Gaza to the West Bank, but was informed by the Palestinian Authority that this could not be done because Israel, the Occupying Power, does not allow such changes to be registered.
