More than 100 Fatah members who fled to Egypt after Gaza fell to their rivals from Hamas last week were to return home Monday, Hamas officials said. The men, members of the Fatah-affiliated security forces routed by Hamas in five days of fighting last week, fled to Egypt through the Rafah crossing in southern Gaza after their defeat. But Egyptian authorities would not let them leave the crossing, and the men have been stuck for days on the Egyptian side of the terminal, the Hamas officials said. Fifteen of the Fatah men re-entered Gaza on Sunday, having co-ordinated their return with Hamas forces, and the rest were to return Monday, according to the officials.
