Gaza: Senior Fatah members detained for several hours
Hamas' security forces in the Gaza Strip on Saturday arrested three leaders from the rival Fatah faction, Fatah officials said. Among those held was Abdel-Rahman Hamad, a former minister in the Palestinian Authority, who had been meeting fellow Fatah members in the city of Gaza, Fatah officials said, according to Reuters.
The Hamas-run Interior Ministry in the Gaza Strip said the Fatah men were detained for questioning after holding an "illegal factional meeting." The detainees were freed few hours after their arrest.
