State of Palestine: We’ll continue despite assassination attempt — PM Hamdallah

«Everything they did today as we entered will only make us more determined to achieve reconciliation,» said Palestinian Prime Minister Rami Hamdallah at the inauguration of an internationally-funded sewage plant in Gaza's Beit Hanoun on Tuesday, following an attempt on his life. Hamdallah delivered the speech the same day an explosion rocked his convoy upon his arrival in Gaza. «We cannot... Еще forget to thank our Egyptian brothers for their continuous efforts towards reconciliation, and, despite what happened to us this morning, we hope that these efforts will be crowned with success,» Hamdallah said. Footage shows that security for the Prime Minister was stepped up following the attack, with Hamdallah immediately leaving after his speech without joining the ribbon-cutting ceremony for the new plant. The explosion occurred shortly after the PM's 20-vehicle envoy entered Gaza through the Erez Crossing with Israel earlier on Tuesday. No group or individual claimed of responsibility in the immediate aftermath, but the Palestinian National Authority blamed Hamas for the bombing.
