Dimona Suicide Bombers Resurrected - No virgins for fellow in the tape

This "resurrection" of dead suicide bombers did not actually take place. But a group issued a video showing the proported bombers, while the actual suicide bombers were a different pair. One of them blew up and the other was shot by police. The pair shown on the videotape escaped to Egypt.
Ynet has a somewhat confused version of the story:
Mystery solved: The two Palestinians who were initially said to have carried out the recent terror attack in the southern town of Dimona are alive and well in an Egyptian prison, Ynet has learned.

The attack, which occurred about three weeks ago, claimed the life of one woman and wounded 10 people. A short time after the bombing, two groups claimed responsibility for the attack: the Popular Front's Abu Ali Mustafa Brigades and the Fatah's al-Aqsa Martyrs' Brigades.
However, a short while later Israeli security officials raised doubts regarding the bombers' identity, after photographs of the Dimona bombing site failed to match the videotape. A day later, Hamas claimed responsibility for the attack and said that the two bombers came from the West Bank town of Hebron.

Following the bombing, question marks persisted regarding the fate of the two men featured in the videotape. The Palestinians wondered whether the two were detained or eliminated by Israel or Egypt, or whether they were still at large and planning to carry out another attack.
However, Ynet has learned that Egyptian authorities informed the Popular Front that the two Gazans are in fact imprisoned in Egypt after they were arrested near the border. The Palestinian source who reported the information refused to say whether Egypt was planning to release the two.
Why does Hamas claim responsibility for a suicide bombing done by PFLP and Fatah?? Is it genuine rivalry, or is the moderate government of the moderate Palestinian authority and the moderate PLO and the moderate Fatah, disclaim responsibility so they can play "Good Palestinian-Bad Palestinian?"
The mother of one of the pair shown in the tape was very proud of all the virgins her son will be getting. He may now have to earn his virgins in the ordinary way.
