'Palestinian' civil war update: RPG's at Haniyeh, mortar shells at Abu Mazen

The 'Palestinian' civil war has restarted in earnest since Sunday, and this morning the homes of both 'moderate' 'Palestinian' Prime Minister Ismail Haniyeh and 'moderate' Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas Abu Mazen were fired upon. The 'Palestinian' web site Ma'an reports this morning that at least eighteen people have been killed since Sunday and more than eighty have been wounded.
A rocket-propelled grenade was fired at Palestinian Prime Minister Ismail Haniyeh's house in Gaza City, causing material damage but no casualties, Palestinian security sources reported.

In another incident, four mortar shells were fired towards the headquarters of Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas in Gaza City. No casualties were reported.

Eyewitnesses affirmed that fierce confrontations are ongoing in western Gaza City near the home of Fatah spokesman Mahir Miqdad.

Our correspondent also reported that at least 10 houses were torched in western Gaza City on Tuesday morning.

The death toll as a result of these bloody internecine clashes since Monday is now believed to be at least eighteen in addition to more than 80 injuries.
At least we know that the 'Palestinians' treat their own the same way they treat ours: Hospitals in the Gaza Strip have become a battleground:
A bloody clash took place Monday in the northern Gaza town of Beit Hanoun. Fatah and Hamas gunmen exchanged fire near the hospital, killing a Hamas supporter. The battle then moved to the hospital, where three men - a father and two sons from the Fatah-allied al-Masri clan - were shot dead.

In another confrontation, the Hamas-controlled Shifa Hospital came under fire from the Fatah-allied Bakr clan, after two of its members were killed in clashes with Hamas. Bakr gunmen fired mortars and rocket-propelled grenades, security officials said, drawing Hamas fire from within the hospital.
And the 'Palestinians' have started using another kind of murder: throwing people from the roofs and windows of tall buildings:
Husam Abu Kainas, 26, was killed early Monday after being thrown from the 12th floor of a building in Gaza City. Hamas said he had been kidnapped a day earlier by Fatah militiamen who suspected him and his family of belonging to Hamas.

On Sunday, Muhammad Sawariki, a member of the PA's Force 17 "Presidential Guard" and a Fatah supporter, died after he was thrown from the 18th floor of another tower in Gaza City.
At Fallback LGF, Zombie reports that the PA has thus taken fighting tactics to the 17th century:
In 1618, the Czechs settled their political differences by hurling each other out of the window, an incident now called "The Defenestration of Prague." [See the picture above. CiJ]

We in the West like to think we've moved past the defenestration stage of political debate.

Not so in Gaza.
Actually, that makes the 'Palestinians' relatively 'progressive' for Muslims. The rest of the Muslim world is still stuck in the 8th century. The 'Palestinians' have now made it to the 17th century.

But give them a state reichlet so they can devote their attention to murdering Jews instead of murdering each other.
