Fighting between rival Palestinian groups threatens fragile truce.

    Fatah supporters have clashed repeatedly with Hamas members in recent days

    More clashes

     

    In the northern West Bank town of Nablus, six Palestinians were  wounded, two of them seriously, in clashes between Hamas and the  rival Fatah faction of Mahmoud Abbas, the Palestinian president, medics and witnesses said.

     

    Al Jazeera's correspondent said that a group of Hamas fighters had come under fire while preparing for a ceremony to mark the movement's foundation.

     

    Gaza has recently been the scene of increasingly heavy fighting between Fatah and Hamas.
     
    Tensions have been high in Gaza after Abbas called for early elections on Saturday.
     
    Hamas, which trounced the once dominant Fatah in January polls, said it would boycott a new poll.
