Gaza ministry announces end to passport denials

Feb. 10, 2012 5:12 P.M. (Updated: Feb. 11, 2012 7:43 P.M.)
GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- Gaza's ministry of interior called on Friday for all citizens who had been denied a passport to register for travel documents in the Gaza Strip.

Fair access to travel documents was a tenet of the reconciliation deal agreed between Fatah and Hamas last May. A Gaza-based committee representing those without passports said on Sunday that thousands were still without travel documents.

The ministry said all citizens needing a passport should register at Hamas-affiliated Change and Reform party's offices in Gaza before Saturday at noon. Payment will be requested after the passport is issued, the ministry added.
