Palestinian infighting

The week's news at a glance.

Gaza

President Mahmoud Abbas was struggling to maintain order in Gaza this week after Hamas militants killed three Palestinian police officers. Just days earlier, Hamas had set off explosives at a rally, killing 17 Palestinian civilians in what it said was an accident. Police held a stormy protest, demanding better equipment and more support. The Palestinian parliament promptly gave Abbas two weeks to “fire all directors of the security services who failed to fulfill their duties” and form a new Cabinet. “We will not remain silent in the face of this,” Abbas said. “This mob behavior, this chaos, must end.”
