Gaza: Police ban lingerie displays in stores

Gaza - Ma'an - Gaza police announced Wednesday restrictions on women's
lingerie and dress stores across the Strip.

Among the prohibitions include displaying lingerie or pajamas in store
windows, having fitting rooms or cubicles inside shops, and using tinted
glass for store windows. Security cameras inside women's stores will also be
banned.

Gaza police spokesman Brigadier Ayman Al-Batniji said the new restrictions
will "protect morals and allow people to feel comfortable as they walk down
the street."

The announcement follows a wave of new regulations aimed at women.

On 18 July, the Gaza Interior Ministry issued a ban on women smoking water
pipes (arghileh) in public places, with Batneiji telling Ma'an that the
practice "contradicts" Palestinian traditions and values.

Other bans include a prohibition on women from riding motorcycles and
attending wedding parties extending over midnight.

On Saturday, Gaza government police seized inventory from several shops and
vendors, which a police report said displayed "immoral words." The clothing,
manufactured in Gaza City, was mostly cotton shirts with the words "Porn Man
Clothing" written on them in bold letters.
