AKIPRESS.COM - An explosion in the Gaza Strip has targeted the convoy of the Palestinian Prime Minister, Rami Hamdallah, BBC reported.
Mr Hamdallah was unharmed, but there are reports of some injuries.
President Mahmoud Abbas condemned the "cowardly" attack on the convoy and said he held the militant group Hamas, which dominates Gaza, responsible.
The incident took place amid heightened tensions between the main Palestinian factions over the implementation of a reconciliation deal signed last year.
Palestinians in Gaza and the West Bank have been ruled separately since a rift between Hamas and Mr Abbas's Fatah faction erupted in violence in 2007.
