GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- Gaza police arrested two Fatah members for tearing up the electoral register at a voter booth on Friday.

Sa’ed Ahmad Kilani and Ra’ed Atiya Kilani attempted to block the voter registration process at Al-Shaimaa school in Beit Lahiya, a police statement said.

Fatah issued a statement condemning the arrest of two of its members.

The Central Elections Commission is updating voter records in Gaza this week for the first time since 2005, a key step in the reconciliation accord between Fatah and Gaza rulers Hamas.
