'Palestinian' Civil War: Pre-dawn Hamas attack on 'Presidential Guard' base kills 1

The 'Palestinian' Civil War continued early this morning with Hamas 'gunmen' attacking a 'Palestinian' Fatah 'Presidential Guard' base just before dawn in Gaza City this morning. The Presidential Guard is also known as 'Force 17' and was headed by wanted murderer Mahmoud Damra, who was chosen by 'moderate' 'Palestinian President' Mahmoud Abbas Abu Mazen, until Israel caught Damra. I wonder if Hamas will try to spring Damra for Gilad Shalit.... Of course, that has not stopped Israel, or the US from trying to arm Force 17.

Anyway, one Fatah member 'elite Presidential Guard' officer' was killed in this morning's attack according to al-AP:
A fierce, 20-minute battle ensued, and the sound of fire from guns and grenades mingled with the call for morning prayer. The gunmen fled after reinforcements were sent to the base from other Presidential Guard camps.

Security officials were searching the camp and surrounding area for the gunmen.

A Presidential Guard official denounced the attack as an assault on the "symbol of Palestinian legitimacy." [BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAH! CiJ]

Because it is a training facility, only about a dozen people were inside the base when the gunmen pulled up in jeeps and launched their attack, security officials said.

The base is located about 700 meters from the president's residence and office in Gaza City. Abbas was in the West Bank town of Ramallah at the time of the attack.

Before arriving at the base, the gunmen attacked an electricity transformer in the area, cutting off power to the base and nearby houses, the presidential guard said. [I'm waiting (not silly enough to hold my breath) for them to be condemned like Israel was last summer for shooting out all the transformers in Gaza. CiJ]
Al-Reuters reports that Hamas is denying involvement in the attack! Must have been those evil Israelis!
Abu Ubaida, a spokesman for Hamas' armed wing, denied the group had been involved in the attack, the first of its kind against the US-backed 3,500-strong force, saying: "This is a wrong and irresponsible accusation."
And just to prove to you that they're all the same terrorists - they just change uniforms every so often:
Dozens of masked gunmen in uniforms similar to those worn by Hamas gunmen shot and wounded a guard at the entrance to the camp in Gaza City and then fired and killed him at close range, a senior officer from the presidential guard told Reuters. [It's so consoling to see them doing to their own what they usually try to do to us. CiJ]

The gunmen then stormed the camp and set fire to dozens of tents and traded gunfire with several presidential guards stationed inside, wounding at least five of them, the officer and a Palestinian security source said.
Al-Reuters also reports that Hamas used a rocket propelled grenade to take out that transformer. I wonder where they got an RPG from....

But give the 'Palestinians' a state reichlet and all of the world's problems will be solved. /sarcasm
