Gunmen from Hamas and the Fatah engaged in a shootout at the Palestinian Health Ministry on Sunday, wounding three people in the latest internal clashes between the feuding groups. The incident began when Fatah loyalists arrived at the ministry to talk with Health Minister Bassem Naim, a top Hamas official, and Naim called on Hamas militants to come protect him, ministry employees said. When the Hamas gunmen arrived, a shootout broke out with the Fatah militants, witnesses said.
