The rival Hamas and Fatah factions reached a new cease-fire deal Saturday, after a week of deadly fighting, officials announced, pledging to pull fighters off the streets and exchange hostages. As the agreement was reached, clashes erupted outside the home of a senior Fatah official in Gaza City, and security officials said several people were wounded. In another incident, the convoy of a Fatah-allied colonel in the Palestinian intelligence came under fire, but no one was hurt.
