Hamas gunmen kill 6 as Gaza rally erupts

During Fatah's biggest show of strength since they were run out of Gaza in June, their rally to mark the 3rd death anniversary of Yasser Arafat erupted in violence as Hamas triggermen supposedly maintaining security fired into the crowd of a quarter million, killing six people and wounding dozens. The festering hatred between these factions obviously has not abated. No one seems to knows how to fix this situation. Any hint of unity has been quickly shattered, as are hopes for a peaceful coexistence. Here comes the spiral of bloodshed and revenge. (Image by Getty)

According to Palestinian reports the dead included two 12-year-olds.
Peaceful assembly seems impossble inside Gaza. Ghost of Arafat should not be roused I guess
