Palestinian police and terrorists exchanged fire at police station in Nablus, underscoring how hard it will be for Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas to regain control of the streets. The incident occurred when a gunman from the radical al-Adwa Brigade came to visit his brother in jail, but was refused entry by police. An argument ensued and the gunman was beaten. Afterward, the terrorist summoned other men from the group who opened fire at the station. Police returned fire, wounding two of the gunmen. Somehow, Abbas found a way to blame Israel. "We hope that Israel will withdraw soon from these cities so that we can control security," he told reporters in Ramallah. "As long as the Israeli army is in the Palestinian West Bank, there will be breeches."
