The sources added that Palestinian security officials and the police arrived at the scene and sealed the area in order to initiate an investigation into the attack.

The Hamas-run police and security forces managed to apprehend the assailants who are reportedly members of the Fateh movement, and considered the incident as part of internal conflicts within the movement.
