At approximately 9:30 am on Sunday 24 February 2013, the Gaza Government's internal security apparatus prevented Mrs.
Amal Hamad, a member of Fatah Revolutionary Council, from travel via Erez crossing.
Mrs.
Hamad was travelling to attend a meeting for the Central Committee for Fatah in Ramallah.
In her affidavit to Al Mezan, Mrs.
Hamad stated that at approximately 8:00 am on Sunday 24 February 2013, she went to Erez crossing to travel to Ramallah to attend a meeting for the Central Committee for Fatah.
When she approached the internal security apparatus site which is close to the Erez crossing, one member of the apparatus force stopped her and asked her to hand over her passport and to wait in one of the rooms.
She waited for an hour and a half.
The officer then came and handed her the passport and informed her that she was banned from travelling for political reasons.
She then returned home.
