    Israel is in clear violation of the 1995 Oslo II accords with these actions as outlined in Paragraph 14 of Article 28 of Annex III of the Interim Agreement which states that: Persons from countries having diplomatic relations with Israel who visit the Gaza Strip and the West Bank shall either be required to obtain the aforementioned visitor's permit or to hold a valid passport and an Israeli visa, when required. Such visitors can enter Israel during the validity of their visit permit, without any need for another permit. Paragraph 13(b) of the same article: Visitors [from countries not having diplomatic relations with Israel who visit] the Gaza Strip and the West Bank shall be permitted to remain in these areas for a period of up to three months granted by the Palestinian side and cleared by Israel. Such visitors can enter Israel during the validity of their visit permit, without any need for another permit. Paragraph 1(e) of Article 9 of Annex 1 of the Interim Agreement: Tourists to the West Bank and the Gaza Strip from countries having diplomatic relations with Israel, who have passed through an international crossing, will not be required to pass any additional entry control before entry into Israel.
