Palestinian sources reported that a group of unknown gunmen shot and killed a Palestinian Police officer in the northern part of the Gaza Strip on Saturday morning.

The sources said that a group of gunmen opened fire at 23-year Abd Al Salam Abu Taqia in his home at Jabalia refugee camp in northern part of the Gaza Strip.

Eyewitnesses said that Abu Taquia is a member of the Fateh Movement.

Hamas took total control in Gaza in June 2007, ending a year long of infighting with the Palestinian President Fatah party after the latter won the Palestinian Legislative elections in 2006.
