Moreover, two Hamas members were abducted by Fateh gunmen in the West Bank city of Nablus. Hamas sources also said that Fateh gunmen fired rounds of live ammunition at the Al Shifa Hospital in Gaza city, causing damage.
Islam Shahwan, media spokesperson of the Hamas-formed Executive Force said that this attack is a serious violation to the truce.
On Saturday afternoon, six members of Fateh were abducted, apparently by Hamas gunmen, at roadblocks installed by the gunmen in Gaza City. The six, who were unarmed, are members of the Preventive Security Forces which are controlled by Fateh.
