The Palestinian Authority is banning all LGBT members from activities in the West Bank.

The ban comes after the group Al-Qaws for Sexual & Gender Diversity in Palestinian Society, which supports Palestinians who identify as a part of the gay community, was planning to hold a gathering for its members at the end of August, but won’t be able to anymore. Their event was supposed to be held in Nablus.

The article goes on to state the following:

Luay Zreikat, spokesperson for the PA Police, told the Jerusalem Post that activities from the organization are “harmful to the higher values and ideals of Palestinian society.”

He also claimed that group’s activities were completely “unrelated to religions and Palestinian traditions and customs, especially in the city of Nablus,” and that “dubious parties” were working to “create discord and harm civic peace in Palestinian society.”

Zreikat also warned that they will arrest anyone caught in violation of the law and urged Palestinians to report any violation of the law they witness.
