Hamas security forces prevent Fatah official from leaving Gaza

GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- A Fatah official was prevented from leaving the Gaza Strip on Sunday to attend a meeting in Ramallah.

Amal Hamad, a member of Fatah's central committee, told Ma'an that Hamas security forces prevented her from traveling after keeping her at the border crossing for an hour and a half.

She was heading to Ramallah for a central committee meeting.

"Such procedures violate basic human rights and remind us of the Israeli collective punishment policy, a measure that would entrench the split," Fatah said in a statement.
