Palestinian interior minister quits amid violence
Infighting and continued factional violence erupted yet again in Gaza. Political and social instability have resulted in a major power struggle between the ruling party Hamas and Fatah.
The Palestinian interior minister resigned on Monday, rocking a two-month-old unity government, after the biggest surge in factional fighting in months revived fears of civil war.
Despite an Egyptian-brokered truce, two Palestinian gunmen and two civilians caught in crossfire were killed in Gaza in clashes between the Hamas and Fatah groups. Nine people have been shot dead since a new round of violence erupted on Friday.
