A Fatah official warned of an expected Hamas security campaign in Gaza on its rival faction, Palestinian news agency Ma'an reported Saturday.

Ma'an cited Fatah legislator Majed Abu Shamalah's warning after Hamas security forces on Friday morning raided the homes of various Fatah leader in the Gaza Strip.

Shamalah condemned the raid on the home of Khalil Abu Hasna, executive director of the Fatah National Commission for Development and Islamic Solidarity, which he said evaded the sanctity of the holiday of Id al-Fitr, marking the end of the holy month of Ramadan.

According to Ma'an, the Fatah legislator said Hamas may launch a larger-scaled security crackdown after the holiday, which ends on Sunday
