Over a thousand supporters of the Islamist group Hamas marched through the streets of a West Bank stronghold of its rival Fatah party on Wednesday, testing a surprise Palestinian unity pact the two signed last week. The rally in Ramallah, the Palestinians' de facto capital in the Israeli-occupied territory, followed a funeral in the city's main mosque for Hamas militants killed by Israel in 1998. Their bodies were released from Israeli custody this week.
