Hamas forces have collected weapons from a large, influential clan linked to the four-month kidnapping of a BBC reporter, Hamas said Friday. The Doghmush family turned in 60 weapons to the forces for the Hamas rulers of the Gaza Strip on Thursday, Hamas spokesman Saber Khalifa said. Hamas agreed to let the clan keep several weapons on the condition that they are used against Israel and against Palestinians in any future fighting, Khalifa said.
