    RAMALLAH, (PIC)-- The Israeli occupation authority and its forces refused on Sunday to allow Hamas lawmaker Ibrahim Dahbour to travel abroad.

    MP Dahbour was on his way to Geneva to join a Palestinian parliamentary delegation invited by the international network for rights and development to participate in a conference, sponsored by the UN human rights council, on Israel's violations against Palestinian lawmakers.

    It was not the first time he was banned from traveling outside the occupied Palestinian territories, the MP affirmed.

    He added that Israel does not want the Palestinian lawmakers to be in contact with the international community and have the chance to explain and rally support for their national cause.
