GAZA CITY, Gaza Strip
Jun. 12, 2007


Late Monday, gunmen, apparently from Hamas, laid siege to the house of Jamal Abu al-Jediyan, the senior Fatah official in northern Gaza, then dragged him outside and killed him. Medics said he was hit with 45 bullets (!!! NB).

Seems like Hamas militants had a hard time trying to kill the guy as the man just refused to die. Now I got the idea why they took to throwing each other off towers recently.


Al-Jediyan was a top aide to Gaza Fatah strongman Mohammed Dahlan. Al-Jediyan's brother was also killed, execution-style, by two shots from close range, hospital officials said.

. . .

Early Tuesday, three women and a child were killed when Hamas militants attacked the home of a senior Fatah security official with mortars and grenades, security officials said. The gunmen seized Hassan Abu Rabie and killed his 14-year-old son and three other women in the house, hospital officials said.

. . .

A bloody clash took place Monday in the northern Gaza town of Beit Hanoun. Fatah and Hamas gunmen exchanged fire near the hospital, killing a Hamas supporter. The battle then moved to the hospital, where three men - a father and two sons from the Fatah-allied al-Masri clan - were shot dead.

In another confrontation, the Hamas-controlled Shifa Hospital came under fire from the Fatah-allied Bakr clan, after two of its members were killed in clashes with Hamas. Bakr gunmen fired mortars and rocket-propelled grenades, security officials said, drawing Hamas fire from within the hospital.

We should better start learning these names - al-Masri clan, Bakr clan... New forces are coming to rule the strip. Fatas and Hamas may soon become like distant memories of the good old days.

PS

My reading of the situation - the Palestinian civil war has began.

Hamas-affiliated television said that the organization overtook the entire northern section of the Gaza Strip, the report stated.

Israel Radio also reported that a top Fatah military official sent a message to Palestinian Authority Chairman Mahmoud Abbas stating that security forces were holding their ground, but calling on the Fatah leader to order an end to the current policy of restraint, allowing troops to return fire.

Less then an hour after the attack, Abbas called for an immediate cease-fire.

. . .

Earlier Tuesday, Fatah spokesman Maher Miqdad, speaking on a Palestinian radio station, blamed Iran for the internecine violence in the Gaza Strip. Miqdad was quoted by Israel Radio.

Miqdad said Iran is sponsoring a Shi'ite war using Hamas. (!!! NB)

Iran was using Hamas to "conduct ethnic cleansing in the Palestinian territories," Miqdad was quoted as saying. (!!! NB)

Farfur strikes back

At least 14 Palestinians were killed in clashes between Fatah and Hamas on Wednesday, as fierce battles over key security positions spread to central Gaza.

In the southern town of Khan Yunis, a one-ton bomb planted in an underground tunnel tore through the headquarters of a security force loyal to Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas of Fatah, said Ali Qaisi, a Presidential Guard spokesman. At least one person was killed and eight others were injured, medics said and security forces said they had lost control of the town.

"Khan Yunis is finished, but we are still holding on in Rafah," said Ziad Sarafandi, a senior security official.

Before the blast, Hamas gunmen called on the officers inside the building to come out, threatening to blow up the building, witnesses said.

Elsewhere, Hamas gunmen wrested control of the coastal strip's main north-south road - and put themselves in position to cut off reinforcements to beleaguered Fatah forces.

. . .

. . .

A PA official expressed deep concern over Hamas's success in taking control of several Palestinian security installations. He revealed that Hamas had succeeded in laying its hands on large amounts of weapons belonging to the Fatah-controlled security forces in many parts of the Gaza Strip.

"They have seized thousands of rifles, large amounts of ammunition and dozens of vehicles, including armored jeeps," he said. "This is really bad news for all."

A new predator comes to town (forest ?? NB)

Most of the Gaza strip is in the hands of Hamas. Probably tomorrow comes the turn of the Gaza City. During the day Abbas has not only failed to order his troops to counter-attack but he could not even decide about pulling his faction out of the unity government. This fact may actually be a clue to many questions asked at the time about the reasons behind the inability of the Palestinian leadership to address the issue of the right of return at the final stages of the Oslo process and its apparent unwillingness to confront the Palestinian street at the beginning of the Second Intifada.

The Palestinian civil war happens to be surprisingly swift and relatively bloodless and it seems to be already heading towards a decisive end in Gaza. Andrey was wondering about a possible Fatah retaliation in the West Bank. I bet it's at that point that the real fun starts. And Abu Mazen should better book a flight to UAE already. He and his team have got away with having lost the elections, but to lose Gaza is probably more than his supporters can swallow, which means . . . another Palestinian civil war may be already on the way here.
