CWN Editor's Note: “In previous years, Christians living in Gaza (map) were privileged to be able to apply through the Greek Orthodox Patriarchate in Jerusalem to receive travel permits from Israel to visit family and friends in the West Bank (map) over the Christmas period,” according to the report. “This year, however, nearly all the Christmas permit applications have been refused by the Israeli authorities, with only Christians over the age of 55 being allowed to travel.”
