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.
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...
“Hamas mistakenly kills 5 of own fighters”
A good start.
Well, the families need a couple of good lawyers, may I suggest the firm of Rodham/Edwards ?
Now that is friendly-fire one can appreciate!
Dag nabbit, I’m running out of popcorn. Enough of the previews, let’s get to the main show!
Warning! This is a high-volume ping list.
Scorpions in a bottle.
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.
And in other news:
HAMAS blames Israel for making them kill their own HAMAS members.
I can live with that.
More premature jihadulation, secondary to their electile dysfunction!
Sooner or later they’ll all be dead except for the last guy.
It’s like that Bruce Willis movie, ‘Last Man Standing’.
My day was brightened by this news. The more terrorists dead, the better.
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. : )
That got hurt you know they won’t collect worker comp in PLO offices LOL!
