A senior member of Hamas' military wing was shot in the chest in a drive-by shooting early Saturday, Palestinian security officials and Hamas officials said. The shooting came amid growing tensions between the radical Islamic Hamas government and Palestinian security forces dominated by the rival Fatah party of Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas. The man, Abdel Hadi Siyam, 35, was taken from the hospital to a Hamas clinic for security reasons, a Hamas spokesman, Abu Obeidah, said.
