Fatah gunmen on Monday released the deputy mayor of Nablus, two days after kidnapping him in a wave of factional violence. The deputy mayor, Mahdi al-Khamali, a top Hamas official in the city, was abducted on Saturday. The following day, gunmen released a video of al-Khamali, threatening further attacks against Hamas. Al-Khamali, unshaven and with his shoes covered in mud, was taken to the office of the Nablus governor, the witnesses said. He did not appear to be harmed.
