Hamas infighting?

The anti-Hamas Palestine Press Agency is claiming that a Hamas leader was poisoned by other Hamas leaders, and is close to death.

The agency reports that Assif Kahil is in Shifa Hospital in a state of clinical death from poisoning. According to the report, senior Al Qassam Brigades leaders - including Ahmed Al-Jabari and Ahmed Al-Ghandour - visited Kahil's house on Sunday night and then Kahil was rushed to the Shifa Hospital on Monday. Apparently, he was involved in a financial dispute and disagreements over weapons transactions.
