Explosion targets Palestinian PM's convoy as it enters Gaza Strip

But Fatah quickly held Gaza's Islamic Hamas rulers responsible for the "cowardly attack" on the convoy, further escalating tensions between the bitter rival factions.

"We condemn the crime of targeting the convoy of Dr. Rami Hamdallah", said a Hamas statement posted on Twitter.

According to witnesses, a passenger on a motorbike threw an explosive device at the last vehicle in the prime minister's convoy shortly after it entered Gaza through the Erez Crossing with Israel on Monday morning.

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.

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

Seven people were injured in the auto bomb attack, which blew up three cars and was complemented by gunmen who opened fire on the convoy.

During his trial, Groening acknowledged "moral guilt" but said it was up to the court to rule on his legal culpability. German prosecutor Kathrin Soefker said he died in hospital on Friday.


An explosion has struck the convoy of the Palestinian prime minister during a rare visit to Gaza, sparking fears of an assassination attempt. One had signs of blood on the door. Radical Islamists opposed to Hamas also operate within the Gaza Strip and have regularly been behind unrest there.

He arrived in Hamas-run Gaza to inaugurate the sewage plant and said there that the attack will "not deter from seeking to end the bitter split".

The World Bank, European Union and other European governments have paid almost $75 million in funding.

Hamas and Abbas's Palestinian Authority are still divided over how to implement an Egyptian-brokered reconciliation deal.

The White House is due to hold a conference on the deteriorating humanitarian situation in Gaza on Tuesday, but it is unclear whether any Palestinian officials will break their boycott of USA officials to attend.
