Hamas arrests 2 Aqsa fighters firing rocket

Hamas arrested two fighters who fired rockets into southern Israel from the Gaza Strip on Thursday after Israel killed a Palestinian civilian on Gaza border.

An official with the al-Aqsa Martyrs Brigades, a armed faction of Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas's Fatah movement, said Hamas security forces arrested two of its members who were involved in firing two rockets at Israel.

"They chased the two after they fired the rockets and abducted them," the official said.

Hamas had no immediate comment.
