Palestinian PM unhurt after explosion in Gaza

Palestinian PM unhurt after explosion in Gaza

Several people were lightly injured after an explosive device detonated as the motorcade of Palestinian Authority Prime Minister Rami Hamdallah entered the Gaza Strip on Tuesday, Palestinian media reported.

Minutes after the blast, Hamdallah, appearing unhurt, delivered a speech at the inauguration of a waste treatment plant in the Gaza Strip, live TV footage showed.

Mr Hamdallah's ruling Fatah party quickly held Hamas responsible for the "cowardly attack" on the convoy, further escalating tensions between the bitter rival factions.

Three of the vehicles in Hamdallah's convoy were damaged, their windows blown out. "The challenge will be determining which ideas can be realistically implemented in light of the fact that the Palestinians of Gaza continue to suffer under the authoritarian rule of Hamas", he added.

The prime minister is based in the occupied West Bank and travelled overland, via Israel, to the Gaza Strip.

Regarding the convening of the national council, Al-Ahmad said that Hamas was not invited to attend because it would be held with its current formation and Hamas remains outside this shape due to the continued division.

Hamas called the attack an "ugly crime" and said it had launched an investigation.

"The situation in Gaza requires political processing before being dealt with as a humanitarian case as Washington promotes", said Majdalani, and that the US conference is "part of the liquidation project aiming at detaching the Gaza Strip from the West Bank and eliminating the possibility of establishing the Palestinian state on the borders of 1967".

Mr Hamdallah and Hamas leaders were due to meet an Egyptian security delegation during this visit to discuss ways to overcome their differences.
