Two Palestinian fighters of the Al-Quds Brigades, the armed wing of the Islamic Jihad, have been injured during clashes that took place, Saturday, with members of the Al-Qassam Brigades of Hamas, and members of the Hamas-run security forces of the Interior Ministry in Gaza.Eyewitnesses reported that members of the Al-Quds Brigades established a training area in the former Israeli settlement of Nitzarim, south of Gaza city, and clashed with security forces and members of the Al-Qassam bridges who tried to remove them.

The clashes were relatively brief; the two wounded Palestinians suffered moderate injuries.

Medical sources reported that one resident was also injured when his motorcycle crashed into a jeep driven by members of the Al-Quds Brigades.

Also, dozens of security officers were deployed in the Salah Ed-Deen Street, between Az-Zeitoun neighborhood in Gaza, and Khan Younis, in the southern part of the coastal region.

They stopped and searched several vehicles in an attempt to prevent more gunmen from heading to the area where the clashes took place.
