The Palestinian firefighters were denied permits to enter Israeli territory for an Usfiya ceremony to honor them for bureaucratic reasons, defense officials clarified Tuesday.

The Palestinians had contacted the Civil Administration on Monday night, and said that they would like to attend the ceremony and were told to transfer a list of names for entry into Israel, according to defense officials.

The list was on provided by the Palestinians early Tuesday afternoon, the defense official said, not leaving sufficient time to track each of the individuals on the list and enable them to cross into Israel for the ceremony.
