A member of Hamas was killed Saturday in a fresh flare-up of fighting with Fatah and dozens of men from both sides were injured. Gunbattles broke out Saturday evening in the south Gaza town of Rafah, where Hamas accused its rivals of firing at its men from a house used as a Fatah base. Hamas in turn blew up a building used by Fatah and tit-for-tat skirmishes raged late into the night. Hamas said one of its local field commanders, Ahmed Abu Harb, was killed in the fighting and hospitals said they received a total of 59 casualties.
