GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- Gunmen in the Gaza Strip shot and injured a Fatah leader in Jabaliya refugee camp on Friday, a Ma'an correspondent said.
Masked gunmen riding a motorbike opened fire on senior Fatah leader Jamal Obeid as he was leaving a mosque following Friday prayers, a Fatah spokesperson said.
He suffered injuries to his leg and was transferred to a local hospital for treatment.
Fatah condemned the attack and said it would open a special investigation into the incident.
Gaza's Hamas-run interior ministry said that security forces were also investigating the shooting.
