RAMALLAH, West Bank — Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas appointed former World Bank official Salam Fayyad to head an emergency government after militants from the rival Hamas faction routed his Fatah forces and seized control of the Gaza Strip enclave.
"I am a target of Hamas,'' said Wael Abu Elfahem, a Fatah youth worker from the Jabaliyah refugee neighborhood. "Our life was in danger, and is still in danger."
After days holed up at home while fighting raged in the streets, Mr. Elfahem said he was able to slip out of Jabaliya when Hamas gunmen abandoned their checkpoints to take part in the looting of the just-captured Fatah security headquarters.
