Gaza Strip: Two Palestinians dead in clashes
A four-year-old boy died early on Friday after being caught in crossfire between rival Palestinian factions in the Gaza Strip, medical and security sources said. In a separate incident, the body of a Fatah member kidnapped earlier in the day along with a comrade was found in Gaza City.
According to AFP, toddler Hassan Abu Nada died and three other people were injured during exchanges of gunfire in the northern Gaza town of Beit Lahiya between supporters of Hamas and Fatah, the sources said.
Later on Friday, two Fatah members and two Hamas members were seized in tit-for-tat abductions that came despite an agreement between the two sides the previous day to stop such kidnappings, security sources said.
