The Palestinian police freed two UN workers who were abducted by Palestinian gunmen in Gaza, a Palestinian security source reported.
The two workers, who were no identified, were taken to safety by the police after storming the kidnappersÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ hideout in Khan Younis refugee camp in the Gaza Strip.
The two UN employees were abducted from a UN car earlier on Monday; exchange of fire was reported while the Palestinian security was searching for them, no injuries were reported.
A Palestinian policeman in Gaza reported that the UN vehicle was cut off by gunmen, who abducted the UN employees.
The abduction was carried out only a day after the P.A security arrested Suleiman al-Farra, a senior Fateh leader, known of his support to al-Aqsa brigades, the military wing of Fateh.
Al-Farra is the director of Farouq al-Qaddoumi office in Khan Younis refugee camp; al-Qaddoumi is head of the Political Bureau of the Palestinian Liberation Organization.
