Prime minister returns to Ramallah says assassination attempt well prepared

Prime minister returns to Ramallah says assassination attempt well prepared

Six security guards were wounded, Hamdallah said shortly after the attack.

Palestinian Prime Minister Rami Hamdallah was making a rare visit to Gaza when the explosion went off Tuesday. Officials say Rami Hamdallah, who is based in the West Bank, was not hurt by the bomb but several cars were damaged, reports VOA.

Palestinian intelligence chief Majid Faraj was also in the convoy but was not injured in the explosion, which occurred shortly after they entered the territory.

"It [the attack] does not represent patriotism".

The study said that there has been significant increase of 24 per cent in India's weapon import between 2008-12 and 2013-17. Surprisingly, India's long-time foe has slashed its imports despite its tensions with India and internal conflicts.

A statement from Hamas also condemned the attack but likewise condemned the response from Palestinian Authority.

Greenblatt - who alongside Jared Kushner was tasked by Trump with finding a way to resume stalled Israeli-Palestinian peace talks - said "we regret" that the Palestinian Authority boycotted the meeting. "It is a unsafe step aimed at spreading disorder and fighting among our people", Munir al-Jaghoub, who heads Fatah's information department at the Office of Mobilisation and Organisation, said.

Hamas leader Ismail Haniyeh reportedly spoke with Hamdallah on the phone, telling him there would be an investigation. The two parties, which fought an bitter internecine war in Gaza in 2007, signed a reconciliation deal in Cairo a year ago.

Gaza's interior ministry spokesperson Iyad al-Buzom told Al Jazeera that pointing blame in the attack "has a political dimension".

He said: "I'm in no position to question or disagree if someone wants to have a pop or the police want to speak to me". In retaliation, Carragher leans out of his window and spits towards the auto , spraying the 14-year-old girl.

Hamdallah insisted "this incident won't stop us from our work in Gaza and won't stop us from the reconciliation". However he added that his visit would be shorter than planned.

"We will hear Fatah saying that some members of Hamas do not want reconciliation, and likewise, we will hear Hamas saying this could have been a fabricated attack by Fatah's security services", Ibrahim said. "I call on Hamas and all other factions to take part in the national Palestinian council that will convene in April because this is a critical phase for the Palestinian people".

The attack is likely to further increase tensions between Hamas - which denied any involvement - and President Mahmoud Abbas' Fateh, with a reconciliation agreement between the two all but dead.

"This explosion will have repercussions for the people in Gaza".
