'Tamarrad' in Gaza says no activists arrested

Aug. 24, 2013 2:43 P.M. (Updated: Aug. 25, 2013 2:15 P.M.)
GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- No "Tamarrad" activists have been arrested in the Gaza Strip, the newly-formed youth movement said Saturday.

Tamarrad (Rebel) Against Injustice said in a statement that reports its activists had been arrested by Hamas security forces in the enclave were false.

Hamas official Yahya Mousa told the Lebanese newspaper El-Nashra on Friday that security forces had detained members of the Tamarrad group and that they were being interrogated.

Mousa said the group had centers in the West Bank and Gaza and that its members were trained by Egyptian intelligence and security services.

The Egyptian Tamarod (Rebellion) movement is a protest group that organized opposition to the rule of president Mohamed Morsi, the Muslim Brotherhood leader who was deposed on July 3.

Gaza's Tamarrad movement was launched to counter "injustice" against the Palestinian people and to work toward achieving reconciliation between Palestinians, the group said in its statement on Saturday.

In a video released Sunday, masked activists read a statement by the group calling for protests across the enclave on Nov. 11 to overthrow Hamas.

On Nov. 11, all "tyrannies and oppression practiced by the Muslim Brotherhood in Gaza" will come to an end, the activists said.
