GAZA CITY (Ma’an) -- The internal security the government in the Gaza Strip has forbidden Zakaria al-Agha, 71, from traveling to the West Bank through the Erez crossing north of Gaza, a rights group said.

The Palestinian Center for Human Rights condemned the action in a statement and demanded that the interior ministry in Gaza respect freedom of movement according to international standards of human rights.

The interior ministry denied al-Agha permission to leave saying he lacked appropriate permits.

Al-Agha is a Fatah leader in Gaza, which is controlled by Hamas.
