Dahlan deported to Jordan?

I've reported a few times on the internecine fighting between 'moderate' 'Palestinian' President Mahmoud Abbas Abu Mazen and former Gaza security chieftain Mohamed Dahlan, most recently here. Israel's Channel 10 reported on Monday evening that Dahlan has been deported to Jordan. Israel Radio reported on its 1:00 am news that a spokesman for Dahlan denies the report and says that Dahlan is currently in Ramallah.

Abu Mazen claims that Dahlan was planning to undertake a coup against his rule. Dahlan's spokesmen deny the charges.
Dahlan denied the reports, telling the Al Arabiya TV network "the accusation that I conspired against Abu Mazen is inconceivable." He said the sources spreading the accusations were trying to cause an internal rift inside Fatah.

The report comes after Palestinian Authority security forces over the weekend arrested Dahlan's director of the bureau.

Sources in Ramallah said that Mu’taz Khdeir, who has been working with Dahlan for the past few years, was arrested for “security reasons.”

Palestinians said that the Dahlan affair marked the biggest challenge to Abbas’s authority since Hamas drove the PA out of the Gaza Strip in 2007.

Private TV and radio stations owned by Dahlan have also been closed down in the context of the clampdown.
I wonder when they'll start throwing each other's people off the roofs of buildings.

Faster, faster!
