RAMALLAH, West Bank - In a new round of factional fighting, assailants targeted three senior Hamas officials in the West Bank, kidnapping one, torching the car of a second and shooting in the air as a third emerged from a mosque, security officials said Thursday. Separately, a member of a Hamas security force was killed Thursday when his car came under fire from unidentified assailants in the Jebaliaya refugee camp in Gaza, a force spokesman said. Four other people were wounded. Hamas accused Fatah of the attack, but Fatah denied involvement.
