A senior Palestinian security officer and Fatah loyalist was killed Thursday in an assault on his house by Hamas gunmen, Palestinian officials said. The officer, Col. Mohammed Ghayeb, had appeared on Palestine TV just moments before his death and appealed for help. Ghayeb's wife was seriously wounded in the attack, in which Hamas fired assault rifles and rockets at the building. Ghayeb was the chief of the Preventive Security Service in northern Gaza, and his killing was expected to trigger revenge attacks by the men under his command.
