Hamas Turns On Fatah Officials In Gaza… 75 Activists Shot In the Legs

Hamas officials have turned on their Fatah brothers in Gaza.
At least 75 Fatah leaders were shot in the legs this week.
Khaled Abu Toameh at The Jerusalem Post reported:

The Hamas government has placed dozens of Fatah members under house arrest out of fear that they might exploit the current IDF operation to regain control of the Gaza Strip.

The move came amid reports that the Fatah leadership in the West Bank has instructed its followers to be ready to assume power over the Gaza Strip when and if Israel’s military operation results in the removal of Hamas rule.

Fatah officials in Ramallah told The Jerusalem Post that Hamas militiamen had been assaulting many Fatah activists since the beginning of the operation last Saturday. They said at least 75 activists were shot in the legs while others had their hands broken.

Wisam Abu Jalhoum, a Fatah activist from the Jabalya refugee camp, was shot in the legs by Hamas militiamen for allegedly expressing joy over the IDF air strikes on Hamas targets.

Meanwhile… Some sanity in the Strip– 60% of Gazans say Hamas was wrong to end ceasefire.
