Explosion Hits as Palestinian PM Enters Gaza

An explosion has struck the convoy of Palestinian Prime Minister Rami Hamdallah upon his entrance into the Gaza Strip, lightly injuring several people.  The explosive device detonated shortly after Hamdallah and his convoy passed through the Israeli-controlled Beit Hanoun checkpoint in northern Gaza on Tuesday, Al Jazeera reported. Hamdallah was unharmed and appeared on live television shortly after the incident at the inauguration of a wastewater treatment facility. However, five others were lightly injured in the blast. The Palestinian Authority intelligence chief Majed Faraj was part of the convoy. “This attack is an attempt to kill all reconciliation efforts. It is a dangerous step aimed at spreading disorder and fighting among our people,” said Munir al-Jaghoub, head of Fatah’s information department at the Office of Mobilization and Organization.
