Hamas on high alert due to Arafat commemoration in Gaza

Hamas forces were on high alert Tuesday morning due to fears that Fatah would deploy large crowds into Gaza streets for the commemoration of the 4th anniversary of Yasser Arafat's death. Last week, Hamas's security forces arrested dozens of Fatah supporters in the southern Gaza Strip in the past few days to prevent them from preparing for the anniversary celebrations Hamas said that it would clamp down on demonstrations or rallies not authorized by the group, Israel Radio reported.
