A Hamas affiliated gunman was shot dead in Khan Younies on Tuesday afternoon. It is the first fatality to be reported since the cease-fire came into effect at 3 A.M on Tuesday morning.


The man killed was an operative of the Al-Qassam brigades, an armed wing affiliated with the Hamas movement, according to Palestinian security sources. The gunman who opened fire at him has not yet been identified.

IMEMC called Fawzi Barhoum, the spokesman of Hamas in the Gaza strip. He stated that apparently some groups of Fateh are not commited to the political leadership commands of Fateh movement, and are still acting on an individual basis.

Barhoum added that Hamas still commits to the ceasefire agreement that was reached on Tuesday at 3A.M.

IMEMC corespondent in Gaza stated that despite the cease-fire, gunmen are still present on the streets of Gaza.
