YNet News reported:
On Thursday night a series of nearly simultaneous explosions occurred in Hamas-controlled Gaza, targeting officials from Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas’ Fatah party.
Letters claiming to be from a Gaza offshoot of the Islamic State group, warned Fatah leaders to stay in their homes until November 15. There were no casualties and Fatah and Hamas consider the letters to be forgeries.
An official from Palestinian President Abbas’s movement reported that his and colleagues’ homes were damaged in series of nearly simultaneous explosions in Hamas-controlled Gaza on Thursday night. There were no casualties.
