MediaLine reports that a member of the Fatah faction hurled a hand grenade into the center of a Hamas demonstration in Gaza earlier today. Two Hamas members were wounded and the attacker was subdued by Hamas security personnel.
The incident has further increased the already rising tensions between the two factions and comes amid media reports that Fatah troops loyal to Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas and supported by the U.S. are deploying throughout Gaza. Abbas has scheduled a major policy address for Saturday. He is expected to announce the dissolution of the Palestinian government, a move opposed by Hamas.
