Update on tomorrow's Fatah/Hamas prayer showdown

Today, Hamas staged their own anti-Fatah rallies to blunt tomorrow's prayer protests planned by Fatah.

Tonight, Hamas is filling all public areas in Gaza with garbage, presumably to make those areas unsuitable for prayer or difficult to access (I haven't been able to determine exactly what kind of garbage makes a place unsuitable, certainly urine and feces do but I do not know if Hamas has gone that far.)

Meanwhile, Hamas is arresting all the Fatah members they can to stave off the protests.

PCHR has documented numerous cases of torture by Hamas in recent weeks.
