More PA/Hamas violence...

Yet more fighting...
Hamas operatives fired on the home of a Palestinian security chief in Gaza early Wednesday, hours after reaching agreement with the ruling Fatah movement to end several days of clashes between the rival factions, a top Fatah official said.

Early Wednesday - after several days of clashes in which two bystanders were killed and several people wounded - Palestinian Authority Chairman Mahmoud Abbas's Fatah movement cut a deal with Hamas to remove gunmen from the streets of northern Gaza.

But barely two hours later, Hamas gunmen refused to stop at a Palestinian police roadblock in Gaza, and then opened fire on the homes of Palestinian police chief, Rashid Abu Shbak, and Fatah leader Abdullah Efrangi, said Soufian Abu Zaida, a Cabinet minister and top Fatah official.
Does this sound like the Palestinian Authority is tackling Hamas????
