Palestinians Rally to End Fighting, 8 Wounded

Dozens of Gaza residents turned out for a rally on Wednesday to demand an end to factional fighting, only to be caught in crossfire that wounded eight of them.

“Just as we used to protect you from the occupation by acting as human shields, we have come to protect you from yourselves,” one protester shouted at gunmen, referring to instances when Palestinian civilians positioned themselves between militants and Israeli forces.

This is choice. Palestinians rally to stop Palestinians from fighting other Palestinians... And so the fighting Palestinian factions take a break from fighting one another long enough to shoot the Palestinians that are rallying to stop the fighting.

That sounds about right.
