Unidentified assailants blow up Fatah leader's car in Gaza

Jan. 22, 2015 11:44 A.M. (Updated: Jan. 23, 2015 8:44 P.M.)
GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- Unidentified assailants blew up a car belonging to a Fatah leader in Gaza City early Thursday.

Witnesses told a Ma'an reporter that a vehicle belonging to Ahmad Alwan went up in flames after a flammable substance was poured on it.

Palestinian police subsequently arrived at the scene of the incident and launched an investigation.

The incident is the latest in a series of attacks on the cars and homes of Fatah leaders in the Gaza Strip, where many are angry over the failure of the Fatah-dominated PA to hold Israel accountable for its promises to ease the blockade.

The incidents have triggered angry exchanges between Hamas and Fatah leaders, potentially endangering the unity government that was agreed upon in April after seven years of political division between the West Bank and Gaza.
