Even as PA Chairman Mahmoud Abbas and Hamas leader Khaled Mashaal prepared to meet in Egypt to discuss political cooperation, inter-Palestinian violence raged throughout the Gaza Strip on Monday night, leaving a Palestinian boy dead and at least seven other residents wounded. The 12-year-old boy was killed by a stray bullet during a gang firefight that erupted near his home. Elsewhere, armed Palestinians shot at a pharmacist and his son, wounding them, and then stole their car.

  • Abbas, Mashaal to hold talks in Cairo Two other Palestinians were moderately hurt in a scuffle that broke out in Gaza City after a soccer game at a stadium in the city. In the A-Shati refugee camp, near the coast, three more Palestinians were lightly to moderately wounded by a makeshift grenade that went off in the home of a Hamas operative who was apparently preparing explosives. Meanwhile, northern Gaza residents blocked streets and burned tires in protest of the ongoing anarchy, Israel Radio reported.
