A protest by unpaid Palestinian security personnel erupted into an armed battle with members of Hamas' private militia, killing one person and wounding three others in a new round of political violence, witnesses and hospital officials said overnight Saturday. The fighting occurred near the Bureij and Nusseirat refugee camps in central Gaza after the security personnel began demonstrating to demand salaries on the eve of a major Muslim holiday. Battered by international sanctions, the Hamas-led Palestinian Authority has been largely unable to pay salaries to government workers since taking office in March. Hamas militia members tried to quell the protest by the security men, who support the rival Fatah movement, witnesses said. A Hamas member was stabbed and moderately wounded, sparking several hours of gunbattles.
