Video: Hamas school principal strikes student with offensive hairstyle

According to the (anti-Hamas) Palestine Press Agency, this video shows the headmaster of the Khaled bin Walid School Secondary School for Boys in the Nuseirat camp in Gaza, Abdul Majeed Isa, slapping a student for having a Western-style haircut.

This past week Hamas announced that boys and girls will be separated in all Gaza schools from the age of nine and above - even in UNRWA and Christian schools. They also are forbidding male teachers in girls schools.

Hamas also announced a crackdown on certain Western-style trouser styles as well as offensive haircuts seen in the street, with some arrests reported.
