Police on Saturday started imposing a ban on street parties in the Gaza Strip until high school exams are over.
Police will allow parties in private buildings but not in public areas, Gaza police spokesman Ayoub Abu Shar told Ma'an, adding that residents were temporarily prohibited from using speakers in Gaza streets.
The ban began Saturday and will be in place until school leavers have completed the Tawjihi, the Palestinian high school test, in June, the police spokesman said.
He said the decision was made in cooperation with the Education Ministry to ensure an appropriate atmosphere for high school students.
