Hamas commander killed on third day of Gaza clashes

Gaza City - A Hamas commander was killed and at least five people injured in Gaza on Tuesday as the latest round of clashes between Hamas and the rival Fatah group entered their third day.

Security forces answering to Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas opened fire at the car of Ibraheem Menia after he refused to stop at a roadblock set up by them in eastern Gaza City, Hamas' military wing, the al-Qassam Brigades, said in a statement.

'We will deal with Menia's murderers in the same way we deal with the Israeli occupation's spies,' the statement vowed.

Meanwhile, at least five Palestinians were wounded during fighting in various areas of the Gaza Strip, medical officials said.

Yeah, Amu, these people aren't violent at all.. they're all a bunch of peaceful hippies who just want to be left alone...
