    Witnesses said that the exchanges of fire lasted for several hours.
     
    They said that groups of armed men were continuing to patrol Gaza City early on Wednesday, and roadblocks - which should have all been removed under the terms of the ceasefire - were still in place.
     
    The truce between forces loyal to Haniya and those supporting Abbas came into force at 11pm (21:00 GMT) on Tuesday, but the factional fighting has continued regardless.
