New car imports into the West Bank has risen sharply, by 44%, according to an Army Radio report Wednesday. Approximately 100,000 orders for new cars have been placed since the beginning of the year by some 1,200 Palestinian car dealers, according to the report. The report cited data from the Civil Administration, which found that Fiat was the most popular car in the West Bank. A jump in the transfer of car ownership from Israelis to Palestinians was also noted. One of the reasons for the new trend is the removal of road blocks in the West Bank, allowing more freedom of movement, according to the report.
