More killing in Gaza

More killing in Gaza

One person has died after a gun battle erupted in Gaza City between Hamas and Fatah militants. Witnesses say more than 2000 bullets were fired and several rocket propelled grenades were launched.

The standoff came about after two Hamas militants were kidnapped late Thursday night.

Security officials suspect that this was a move by Fatah to avenge the killing of its two members in an earlier incident.

The two factions agreed to a truce on Tuesday, which was aimed at ending violence that left dozens killed and injured dozens across Gaza City.
