Palestinian fighting resumes

Palestinian factions clashed in the Gaza Strip on Friday, leaving two militants and a young boy wounded. The fighting comes despite a power-sharing agreement between the two main factions, Fatah and Hamas, that was supposed to end internecine violence that left dozens of Palestinians dead this winter. Friday’s gunbattle in Khan Yunis left at least one member of Hamas and one member of Fatah injured, local residents and rescue workers said, according to Reuters. The young boy was injured by a grenade.
