Fresh killings shatter Gaza truce
Gunmen have killed at least 13 people in the latest factional violence in the Gaza Strip, ending a third attempt at a ceasefire in as many days.
A dawn raid on the home of a top Fatah official left five people dead, only hours after the truce was agreed by the feuding Hamas and Fatah factions.
Later Hamas gunmen ambushed a jeep and mistakenly killed five fighters from their own side detained by Fatah men.
Some 40 people have died since fierce fighting broke out in Gaza on Sunday.
Two members of the pro-Fatah Preventive Security force and a bystander were also killed in the ambush, in the centre of Gaza City.
