Palestinian killed in Gaza clashes, hospital says

Gunmen killed a Fatah supporter in a clash Monday evening in northern Gaza, hospital officials said, the first fatality since rival Palestinian factions declared a truce a day earlier. The man was killed in a standoff between Hamas and Fatah gunmen in the town of Jabalya, according to Dr. Said Judeh of Kamal Radwan hospital. Five other people were wounded in clashes in northern Gaza, Judeh said. Clashes between Fatah and Hamas, rival factions vying for control of the Palestinian government, decreased after Sunday night's truce, but fighting persisted in different parts of the Gaza Strip.
