Earlier this year Palestinian women were banned from riding or even pillioning on motorcycles by Hamas after a woman died in a motorcycle crash in Gaza. She was riding pillion with her son behind her husband.
The Hamas Interior Ministry said that under the rule women would be banned from riding and being pillion. Riders will be fined if they have a female pillion.
“It is time for Gazan society to put an end to the phenomenon of women using motorcycles,” the ministry says in a statement.
