State of Palestine: 10 tons of mail withheld by Israel for 8 years swamp West Bank post office

A post office in the West Bank city of Jericho was flooded with ten tons of parcels, some of them waiting to be delivered for as long as eight years after Israeli authorities released the withheld mail as seen in footage filmed on Sunday. The mailed items in limbo included letters, packages, as well as parcels with medicaments, wheelchairs and TVs, which were prevented from entering Palestinian... Еще territories since 2010. Despite a postal agreement signed by Israel and Palestine in 2016 dictating that Palestine can receive mail directly from Jordan, the post was still sent to Israel first as the country controls most of the West Bank borders. Some of the packages appeared to be severely damaged, and according to Hussein Sawafta, director general of the Palestinian Post Service, the post office will have to get rid of such parcels. The delivery of all the mail might take up to two weeks, according to reports.
