Internal conflict within the ranks of Gaza’s Islamic Jihad has triggered widespread criticism and drew humiliation for the group after one of its armed gangs stormed a mosque during dawn prayers.

Gunmen arrested a number of their comrades while they were worshipping at a mosque in southern Gaza.

A fierce exchange of fire ensued at Al-Ansar mosque in Khan Younis, local sources reported.

Worshippers at the scene were shocked after 15 Islamic Jihad militants broke into the mosque while wearing their boots to arrest a number of people in the congregation.

Those apprehended were taken to Islamic Jihad centers, where they were tortured.
