Four Hamas members were killed in an armed attack during a funeral at a Palestinian refugee camp in southern Lebanon on Sunday, the group said.

In a written statement following the incident, the Palestinian resistance group Hamas accused the Fatah movement of the attack at the Burj Shemali camp.

The shooting took place during the funeral ceremony of a Hamas member at a mosque in the camp.

The Hamas statement said a sporadic shooting was launched when the participants of the funeral ceremony approached the Fatah movement's building.

There is no statement yet by the Lebanese government or Fatah about the incident.
