Hamas ministry to censor Internet sites in GazaMay 19th, 2008 - 8:13 am ICT by admin
Gaza, May 19 (DPA) The telecommunications ministry of the Hamas-run government in Gaza Strip will start blocking websites deemed unfit according to Islamic rules, an official said Sunday. This was made possible after a deal was struck with the Palestinian telecommunications company, said Ihab al-Hussain, a
spokesman for the interior ministry in Gaza, adding that the plan went into effect last week.
It is not yet known which sites have been blocked.
The Islamic Hamas movement took over the Gaza Strip in June 2007 after routing forces loyal to Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas of the more secular Fatah party.
