At least one Islamic Jihad militant was killed in renewed clashes
At least one Islamic Jihad militant was killed in renewed clashes with Hamas in southern Gaza on Wednesday, a local police spokesman.

The violence erupted in the town of Rafah where Islamic Jihad militants attacked a police station manned by members of Islamist group Hamas, which has controlled the Gaza Strip since June. Three other people were wounded in the incident, police said.

Tensions have flared between the two groups repeatedly in recent weeks. Two days of shootouts in late October left at least two Palestinians dead and 18 wounded. The rival sides then declared a truce.

The ruling Hamas and the much smaller Islamic Jihad share similar ideologies, and in the past often cooperated in attacks against Israel. However, since the June takeover of Gaza, Hamas has insisted only members of its security force can carry weapons in public.
