An Egyptian diplomat has been abducted by Palestinian gunmen in Gaza City, reports say.
According to the reports, the diplomat was on his way to his office when masked gunmen surrounded his car and forced him into another vehicle.
I guess those who abducted him were Fatah gunmen. Unlike Hamas, Fatah's militias are not diciplined and do not follow a central command. The organization itself is disorganized and in disarray and that has increased after its defeat. Probably the Fatah gunmen were unhappy with Egypt's meeting of Hamas leaders who are now leaders of the Palestinian government.
