Hamas man killed, another wounded in shooting attacks
One Hamas member was killed and another was wounded in two separate shooting attacks Tuesday in the Gaza Strip, emergency workers said.
The motives for the shootings was unknown, and there was no immediate claim of responsibility. Gunmen from Hamas and Fatah have clashed in recent weeks in a power struggle for control of the Palestinian government following Hamas' victory in January parliamentary elections.
In Gaza City, Mohammed Tatar, 25, was walking down the street when he was shot twice in the head by unknown assailants. He was evacuated to the hospital where he died of his wounds, hospital officials said.
