Palestinian security officials reported Sunday that they have discovered a Hamas bomb factory under a mosque in the West Bank.
There have been several people detained by Fatah-led Palestinian security for questioning.
The discovery is likely to increase the tensions between Hamas and Fatah loyalists. The two factions have been in a feud since June 2007 when the Islamist Hamas were kicked out of Gaza by the Fatah loyalists.
