Explosion targets Palestinian PM's convoy while visiting Gaza

Explosion targets Palestinian PM's convoy while visiting Gaza

Palestinian Prime Minister Rami Hamdallah was unharmed Tuesday but his Palestinian Authority quickly accused Gaza militants of trying to kill him.

An explosive device was detonated after Hamdallah and his convoy passed through the Beit Hanoun checkpoint with Israel in northern Gaza.

The Gaza-based terrorist group also condemned the attempt to harm the security of the Gaza Strip and thwart attempts to achieve Palestinian reconciliation.

Several people were lightly wounded in the incident, according to Israeli daily Haaretz.

SBI reduces charges for non-maintenance of average minimum balance
RBI guidelines mandate that charges for non-maintenance of minimum balance in savings bank accounts be "reasonable". Also, accounts holders under the age of 21 were exempted.

Hamdallah, who was not hurt, left Gaza and was headed back to the West Bank. Gunfire was reported shortly after the explosion.

"The Palestinian Presidency holds Hamas responsible for the cowardly targeting of the Prime Minister's convoy in Gaza", the official Palestinian news agency WAFA reported.

Palestinians slammed Sunday the White House announcement to host a donor conference next Tuesday over the humanitarian crisis in the Gaza Strip, saying it should be dealt with as a political affair.

The explosion occurred near the spot where a US diplomatic convoy was blown up by a remote-controlled bomb in 2003 shortly after it entered the Gaza Strip.
