Palestine Press reports that about 60,000 people crossed the Allenby/King Hussein Bridge between Jordan and the West Bank last week.
30,718 people went to Jordan and 29,010 came the other direction, according to Palestinian police.
This was considered an average week, the statement said.
Palestinian police arrested 57 people on criminal charges for people crossing in both directions.
Israel has control over this and the other crossings to Jordan, and yet the fact that it allows so many people to freely move in both directions every week is at odds with the image that Palestinians and anti-Israel activists want to show the world.
