Two Palestinians were killed Sunday in gunbattles between militants from the ruling Hamas party and security personnel loyal to Palestinian Authority Chairman Mahmoud Abbas, hospital officials said.
The victim's identities were not immediately known. At least 32 others were injured in the clashes, including some bystanders.
The gunfight took place near the Palestinian parliament building, where hundreds of protesters gathered to demonstrate against long-overdue government salaries. Additional clashes occurred outside the Bank of Palestine branch in Khan Yunis.
According to a policeman who participated in the Khan Yunis demonstration, Hamas militiamen ordered them to leave the area and then opened fire at the protesters, who responded by shooting in the air.
