Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas' Fatah party on Sunday accused Hamas forces of banning a Fatah official from traveling from the Gaza Strip.

A statement by Fatah said that Amal Hamad, a member of the movement's Revolutionary Council, was turned back at a Hamas checkpoint in northern Gaza Strip when she was going to the Erez crossing point to travel to the West Bank.

Hamas officers at the checkpoint told Hamad that her name has been blacklisted.

The statement said that Hamas' actions "strain the atmosphere and aim at blocking the implementation of the reconciliation agreement," referring to an Egyptian-brokered deal to reconcile the two rival movements.
