KATIF, Gaza Strip - Armed militants set up checkpoints in Gaza’s evacuated Jewish settlements for a second day Thursday, doing the job of Palestinian security officials who have been unable to rein in the chaos since Israel’s withdrawal.
Dozens of gunmen from the Al Aqsa Martyrs’ Brigades — a militant group linked to Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas’ ruling Fatah movement — were determined to restore order and stop fellow Palestinians from looting valuable equipment from greenhouses Israel left behind.
