Palestinian media sources reported that five unknown gunmen abducted Saturday a resident of Khan Younis city in the southern Gaza Strip.
Mohammad Shahin, 22, owner of an internet café, has been reportedly abducted form his shop in the Al-Amal neighborhood of Khan Younis.
Witnesses said that five gunmen broke into the café and dragged Shain, taking him to unknown destination.
Palestinian police forces have begun searching for Shanin, while Fatah has condemned the attack, as Hamas denied any responsibility for the abduction.
Shahin is affiliated with no Palestinian faction, local residents believed.
Such an incident comes amidst Palestinian factions’ agreement to a power-sharing government, expected to be made public shortly. The unity government deal has been reached in the Saudi Arabian city of Makkah, ending internecine infighting across the Gaza Strip.
Since the deal came into effect early in February, mutual abductions between Hamas and Fatah have come to a halt as infighting has been absent from Gaza streets, except for some family disputes.
