Hamas mistakenly kills 5 of own fighters

Hamas gunmen kill five of own fighters in ambush of Fatah jeep as Gaza seems to be sliding into an all-out civil war with 41 Palestinians killed in four days of internal fighting between the rival factions

Hamas gunmen mistakenly ambushed on Wednesday a jeep carrying their own fighters, killing five of them, in the bloodiest day of Palestinian infighting since violence erupted in the Gaza Strip four days ago.

But according to other accounts, the five victims were members of the Fatah-affiliated Preventive Security force.

Gunmen from the hardline Islamist group also fired barrages of rockets at Israeli towns, an apparent attempt to draw Israel into the internal Palestinian conflict that has sent the coastal territory spiraling into chaos.

At midday Wednesday, policemen from the Preventive Security organization arrested five Hamas men and were driving them through Gaza City when the vehicle was ambushed by Hamas fighters, Preventive Security officials said.

Five of the Hamas men were killed, along with two Fatah men, they said. The exact circumstances of the incident were not immediately clear.

Hamas radio reported that a Hamas man was killed in another clash, and a nurse traveling in an ambulance was shot in the head after being caught in the crossfire, hospital officials said. Her family said she was brain dead and being kept alive by a respirator.

In four days of fighting, 41 people have been killed and dozens more have been injured. The majority of the fatalities have been from Fatah.

Heh. If they keep this up, our job could eventually be made a lot easier... :P

On a more serious note, who the h*ll shoots a nurse in an ambulance? God be with her and her family.

These will all be counted as deaths that the Israeli "Occupation" is somehow responsible for...

Palestinians 'freedom fighters' killed in the fighting in Israel...

I can see it in the Reuters body count...

Isn’t that chick awfully fair skinned for someone from the Middle Easter? Or she’s clearly a child of privilege since her skin’s never been darkened by long, hot days of work in the hot sun. A case of radical chic, I guess.

Don't forget , the ROP is at work there.

You reckon that somebody's pissed (one group vs. another) that they might not have control of the billions (like Arafat did) and so they gotta kill something? Like the jooooossss, cause it's always their fault the Pali's don't invest into their economy with the aide monies? The mentalities of those Pali's is truly amazing.

LOL. That said, things really have heated up and show no signs of cooling. Indeed, the BBC mediots on NPR this morning had their panties all wadded up over the infighting. Me, while I feel for the innocents that are caught up in it, I see this as perhaps a good thing in revealing to the world their true character and nature as the mass media cannot cover it up...

Edited for the good news story of the day:

In four days of fighting, 4,100,000 radical muslims have been killed and hundreds of thousands more have been injured. The majority of the fatalities have been radical muslims.

My advisor is Israeli and as fair as this woman. My advisor's parents were from Russia and Poland, so it's not surprising that the descendants of Europeans would look like...Europeans. : )

Brilliant! May the Hamas Arab terrorists, as well as Arab Fatah terrorists, continue removing themselves.

Let's hope that this thing goes on for years, like the Iraq-Iran war during the 1980s.

Agreed. More of the jihadist enemy which are removed by the jihadist enemy, the better for the civilized world.

However, when the jihadist terrorist enemy continues begging to meet their moon god, we must always do whatever is required to greatly assist them in their requested endevour :)
