3 Palestinians Killed After Abbas Declares Hamas Forces Illegal

Three Palestinians were killed in clashes in Gaza after President Mahmud Abbas declared Hamas forces illegal and demanded they integrate their forces into existing security structures.
The BBC reported:

Ruling Palestinian movement Hamas has said it will double its armed force to 12,000 men, hours after President Mahmoud Abbas declared it illegal.
Mr Abbas had demanded the militia’s integration into existing security structures.

Hamas and Mr Abbas’s Fatah party have been locked in a power struggle since the Islamic group won parliamentary elections a year ago.

The dispute has centred around control of the Palestinian security forces.

Two Hamas officials were kiddnapped earlier today including an Interior Ministry official.
