GAZA, March 13 (Xinhua) -- An explosion went off Tuesday near the convoy of Palestinian Prime Minister Rami Hamdallah during his visit to Gaza, but he was reportedly unhurt.
Islamic Hamas movement condemned on Tuesday the "crime" of targeting the convoy of Palestinian Prime Minister Rami Hamdallah in Gaza Strip.
In a statement, Hamas said the attack is meant to undermine efforts to achieve its reconciliation with the Fatah party, which rules the West Bank.
Earlier in the day, a bomb went off near the convoy of Hamdallah during a rare visit to the Israeli blockaded territory. The blast occurred shortly after the convoy entered Gaza, but no injuries were reported.
Hamdallah, accompanied by Palestinian intelligence chief Majid Faraj, visited Gaza, controlled by Hamas, to overlook the opening of a desalination plant there.
Hamas deplored the accusations by the Palestinian presidency that Hamas is responsible for attack, adding that such charges will help the "criminals" behind the attack to achieve their goals.
