Gaza Strip: Hamas forces arrest 30 Fatah supporters
Hamas security forces detained at least 30 members of a large Fatah clan in the Gaza Strip on Saturday, in what the movement said was a raid targeting criminals but the family said was politically motivated.
According to Reuters, witnesses said Hamas forces made the arrests after entering a group of houses in Gaza City belonging to the Fatah-affiliated Abu Amra clan. Hamas security officers said the raid was aimed at confiscating weapons and drugs.
"There was a decision to raid the place and confiscate the drugs and arms," said security officer Fayez Hassan.
