Hamas forces late Thursday moved into the last Fatah stronghold in Gaza City, the compound of offices of Palestinian Authority Chairman Mahmoud Abbas, witnesses and Hamas officials said. Hamas spokesman Abu Obeida said there was no fighting at the site, because Fatah officers had left earlier in the evening. Hamas forces overran the main Fatah security force headquarters on Thursday, taking control of virtually all of the Gaza Strip. Abbas was in the West Bank city of Ramallah at the time.
