Twenty have been killed this month in battles between Hamas Explodeyboys and Fatah Combustibles:

Rising tensions – and prospects of a civil war in the Palestinian Authority – increased Sunday when gunmen in Gaza shot dead a well-known Fatah terrorist during a clash in the village of Bureij.

Mohammed Shahadeh, leader of al-Aqsa Martyrs Brigades in the camp, was killed outside his home, officials say.

The clash began on Saturday when Fatah-alligned police blocked streets and set fire to tires on main roads to protest over non-payment of salaries by the Hamas-led government. The stabbing of a Hamas militia man who arrived with a force to halt the rally led to a showdown of gun battles which lasted hours.

They set fire to tires? Please, chaps; think of the environment.

UPDATE. In other smoke-related developments:

Beleaguered smokers, forced to extinguish their cigarettes on planes, in restaurants and bars — and increasingly, even on streets and in parks — until recently could at least count on relaxing with a smoke once they got home.

No more, at least not in Dublin, the second city in the nation to declare secondhand smoke a nuisance. The law, passed in August, makes it easier for fellow citizens to sue one another for harm caused by secondhand smoke.

Gaza lawyers can only dream.
