BUT IT’S NOT A CIVIL WAR:
Fatah and Hamas clashed at Cabinet ministries, universities and security headquarters Saturday in defiance of a truce that was to have calmed the seething Gaza Strip.
Twelve people were wounded by late morning, hospital officials said, and Fatah said Hamas had kidnapped 40 of its security officials at roadblocks.
All of this, shockingly, in violation of a cease fire agreement. It seems that Palestinians are as prone to cheat on these agreements when they’re with other Palestinians as when they’re with Israelis. I suppose the Israelis can take an obscure comfort in that.
