"There should not even be a question of needing permits to visit one's own city," PLO Executive committee member Hanan Ashrawi said on Monday, after reports revealed a shortage of permits for Christians in the West Bank to visit holy sites in Jerusalem, Palestinian news agency Ma'an reported.

Ma'an quoted Ashrawi as saying that the fact that Palestinian Christians are denied their rights to worship freely in the capital is "unacceptable."
