Several people were hurt during clashes in the Gaza Strip on Saturday between two groups of Palestinian gunmen belonging to the same family, security forces and witnesses said. According to AFP, a large number of security members belonging to Hamas intervened and re-established calm, cordoning off the area in Sabra, just south of Gaza City.

 

The shooting was among members of the Doghmush clan, one of the largest families in Gaza, with factions loyal to the Army of Islam and to Alwiyat al-Nasr, an offshoot of the Popular Resistance Committees, a Hamas security source conveyed.
