A group of 25 Palestinian gunmen infiltrated Gaza's power plant on Monday, exchanging fire with security forces and wounding at least two people, officials said. Some of the gunmen, affiliated with Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas' Fatah Party, were recently admitted to the Palestinian security forces and have not received their salaries. Others are jobless and demanded employment. The gunmen managed to take over a part of the power plant, the main provider of Gaza's electricity. Palestinian security forces had called in more forces to help remove the gunmen, officials said. Two Palestinian security officials were wounded in the fighting, hospital officials said.
