Hamas steals aid, attacks wedding

Palestine Press Agency reports on two incidents in Gaza.

This morning, dozens of Hamas militants attacked a charity, Cooperative Housing Foundation International (CHF), arrested its workers, and confiscated aid meant for needy families. (CHF indeed feeds thousands of Gazans. Its website is silent on this matter.)

And on Saturday night, Hamas members attacked a wedding, arresting some guests and breaking chairs and sound equipment. [h/t Yerushalimey for spelling]

(PalPress is very anti-Hamas and has articles that none of the news agencies in Gaza would dare report, but its track record has been pretty good.)
