      Gaza - Ma'an - Three Palestinians have died on Thursday, during clashes
      between what appears to be members of the Hamas Executive Forces and the
      Islamic Jihad movement in the Gaza Strip. Seven people were wounded.

      Among the dead are Nidal Ad Daya, 20, from the Islamic Jihad movement, and
      Salah Amoudi, 37, from the Fatah movement. The identity of the third
      casualty remains unknown as of yet.

      The Ministry of Internal Affairs from the deposed government said that it is
      conducting an investigation into the killings, especially the death of
      Amoudi. He was gunned down by unknown gunmen after he left a local mosque at
      dawn, in the Sabra district.

      The An Nasser Salah Ad Din Brigades, affiliated to the Popular Resistance
      Committees, succeeded in mediating between Hamas and the Islamic Jihad.
      Sources within the brigades said that their leader, Zakaria Doghmosh,
      intervened personally to persuade the parties against fighting.

      The clashes started late on Tuesday, at a wedding, when Islamic Jihad
      members were shooting in the air as part of the celebrations, and Executive
      Force members arrived on the scene, telling them to stop firing their guns.

      Khadir Habib, a prominent leader of Islamic Jihad, said the Executive Force
      launched an arrest campaign against the movement's members. Habib told Ma'an
      that he was at the wedding when the clashes erupted. He expressed his
      surprise at the arrests of Islamic Jihad operatives that ensued on
      Wednesday, calling the situation "very dangerous."

      The leader of the Executive Force, Islam Shahwan, affirmed that "nobody is
      above the law; families or factions." He stated that the Executive Force
      intervened, so as to ask the family members to hand over their weapons, but
      they refused to do so.
