Palestinian killed in drive-by shooting in Gaza
Palestinian gunmen on Wednesday opened fire at a pedestrian outside a courthouse in the southern Gaza town of Khan Yunis, killing one man, witnesses said. Palestinian security officials said the man targeted was Bassam al-Fara, 30, a judge of the Islamic court and a Hamas member. There was no immediate claim of responsibility. The drive-by shooting came two days after the killing of the three young children of a Palestinian intelligence officer, sparking renewed clashes between the rival Hamas and Fatah factions and raising the specter of a civil war among Palestinians.
