Palestinian Civil War?

Whatever it is, it’s clearly Palestinian vs. Palestinian. The JPost’s Khaled Abu Toameh reports:

At least three Palestinians were killed in fierce clashes between Palestinian Authority security forces and Hamas gunmen that erupted on Sunday evening in various parts of the Gaza Strip.

PA security sources said the three victims, Ali Makkawi, the commander of the PA Police station in Shati refugee camp, a police officer and a 10-year-old girl, who was run down by a police car, were killed when hundreds of Hamas gunmen attacked the station with rocket-propelled grenades and automatic weapons.

Thirty more people, mostly Hamas members, were said to be wounded as PA authorities attempted to round up arms from the terrorists. Desperate times indeed. Maybe Sharon is beginning to feel sorry for Abbas.
