IS supporters in Gaza demand Hamas halt crackdown

Islamic State supporters in Gaza have given the ruling Hamas movement a 48-hour deadline to halt its crackdown on them. A statement sent to media on Monday did not say what the IS supporters would do if the crackdown continued. It included a claim of responsibility for a rocket fired at Israel from Gaza last week. The claim could not be independently verified.  Hamas has launched a crackdown on radical Islamists following a series of unclaimed bombings.
