Explosion hits as Palestinian PM Rami Hamdallah enters Gaza

Latest news

    An explosion has reportedly targeted the convoy of Palestinian Prime Minister Rami Hamdallah upon his entrance into the Gaza Strip. 

    According to Al Jazeera’s correspondent Wael Dahdouh in Gaza, the explosive device was detonated after Hamdallah and his convoy passed through the Beit Hanoun checkpoint with Israel in northern Gaza. 

    The Palestinian Authority intelligence Chief Majed Faraj was part of the convoy.

    Dahdouh said several people were lightly injured.

    The convoy managed to go through, however, and make their way to the inauguration of a wastewater treatment plant. 

    Fatah, the West Bank-based political party to which Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas belongs, blamed the explosion on Hamas, the ruling party in Gaza.

    Hussein al-Sheikh, a member of the Fatah Central Committee said: “Hamas bears full responsibility for this criminal act. It sets a very dangerous precedent and many decisions and policies will be based on this [development].”
