3 Palestinians wounded in Hamas-Fatah clashes

Three Palestinians were wounded early Tuesday in renewed clashes between gunmen from Hamas and Fatah movements in downtown Gaza City, witnesses and paramedics say. The clashes erupted after Hamas gunmen arrived at the home of a top Fatah official and opened fire at Fatah activists inside, witnesses said. The Fatah gunmen returned fire and three were injured in the exchange, of which at least one was from Hamas, officials said. The clashes follow other confrontations between Hamas and Fatah operatives on Monday in which three people were killed, in the latest sign that the rivals could be heading toward a large-scale confrontation.
