A Gaza rights group on Monday said that Hamas has barred male hairdressers from working in women's salons.




The Palestinian Center for Human Rights said that five male hairdressers were interrogated and forced to sign declarations that they wouldn't work in women's salons. Male hairdressers for women are rare in conservative Gaza where genders rarely mix in public.




Hamas tried to impose a similar ban last March, but backed down after an outcry.
