"KHAN YOUNIS, Gaza Strip -- Palestinian gunmen forced a Hamas commander to his knees and fatally shot him early Wednesday outside of the courthouse where he worked as an Islamic judge, escalating factional tensions in the Gaza Strip....Witnesses to the shooting said four gunmen calmly ate breakfast at a food stand as they waited for al-Fara outside the courthouse. When he emerged from a taxi, three of the men grabbed him and forced him onto his knees, while the fourth pulled out a weapon and shot him. The attack left the sidewalk riddled with bullet holes. The witnesses declined to be identified, fearing for their safety."
As a result of this mess, Ismail Haniyeh decided to cut short his month-long trip abroad, his first ever as a Prime Minister (I always feel silly typing these inflated titles), and get back to attend to the deteriorating situation in Gaza. He was heard saying under his breath: "Ya far7a ma tammat." (translation: I never get to have any fun!)
