    Hamas has banned women from riding motorbikes in Gaza, raising fresh concerns over the movement’s ultra-conservative agenda.

    The interior ministry said the ban was to "to preserve citizen safety and the stability of Palestinian society's customs and traditions".

    The move is the latest step in an "Islamification" campaign by Hamas.

    In July, a senior judge announce that female lawyers would be obliged to wear headscarves in court, a move slammed by human rights groups.

    Hamas have also attempted to ban the display of women’s underwear in shop windows.
