Hamas forces on Saturday raided what they said was a hideout of suspects in a deadly bombing a week ago, and gunfire and explosions were heard in the area. The raid targeted the Gaza City stronghold of the Hilles clan, which backs Hamas rival Fatah. Hospital officials reported that nine people were wounded in the confrontation. Hamas police spokesman Islam Shahwan said bombing suspects were believed to be hiding in the area. He said Hamas had no issue with the Hilles clan, but demanded that the suspects be handed over.
