GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- The Israeli authorities banned a 15-year-old Palestinian girl from traveling through the Erez crossing (Beit Hanoun) between Israel and the northern Gaza Strip, on Thursday.

Fifteen-year-old Iman Ibrahim Muammar, daughter of Ibrahim Muammar, the Head of the National Society for Democracy and Law, from the besieged Gaza Strip was traveling through the Erez crossing to attend a one-year program in the United States, for which she has received a scholarship from "YES" program.

The "YES" program is funded by the U.S. Department of State, Bureau of Educational & Cultural Affairs (ECA) to provide scholarships for high school students from countries with significant Muslim populations to study for one academic year in the United States.

Iman was banned from traveling through the crossing for alleged "security purposes" although she had an approved travel permit.
