Palestinian PM's convoy targeted in Gaza
(MENAFN- Jordan News Agency) Gaza, March 13 (Petra)-- Palestinian Prime Minister Rami Hamdallah and General Intelligence Services Chief Majid Faraj's motorcade Tuesday was targeted by a roadside bomb and came under gunfire in the Beit Hanoun area in northern Gaza strip, a Palestinian source said.
The premier was en route to the opening ceremony of a new water desalination plant on Gaza's shore, said Interior Ministry Spokesman Iyad al-Bozm, adding that Hamdallah continued according to schedule despite the attack.
The Palestinian Authority blamed Hamas Movement for the explosion which left several people injured. Hamas also condemned the attack considering it part of attempts aiming to destabilize security in Gaza and to foil efforts to achieve national unity and said several suspects have been arrested and a manhunt is still underway.
