Senior Hamas officials vowed that the Hamas-led PA government and the movement's armed faction would avenge Thursday night's assassination attempt on Palestinian Authority Prime Minster Ismail Haniyeh. Hamas official Jamal Nasser said, "We know who shot at the prime minster's convoy and killed his bodyguard. Sooner or later we will settle our scores with him." Nasser said that Muhammd Dahlan and other Fatah officials were responsible for "murder and incitement." Other Hamas officials blamed the Palestinian Presidential Guard for the incident.
