Israel has imposed new travel restrictions on Palestinians, preventing them from leaving blockaded Gaza with laptops. The ban also applies in the opposite direction.

Cogat, an Israeli defense body, referred questions to the Shin Bet security service. The Shin Bet says, it is not aware of a laptop ban and will look into the matter.

The Israeli group Gisha said it was informed by Cogat last week that Gazans can no longer carry electronic devices, except mobile phones, when leaving the territory.

Israel and Egypt have enforced severe Gaza travel restrictions since the 2007 takeover of the territory by the Islamic militant Hamas.
