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.

Nabil Abu Rudeineh, Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas' spokesperson, held Hamas responsible for the attack.

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

Hamdallah, who was accompanied by the Palestinian Authority's top intelligence official Majed Faraj, was making a rare visit to Gaza to inaugurate a new wastewater treatment plant.

Photographs showed one 4×4 vehicle with its windows apparently blown out and airbags deployed.

New Hampshire judge rules $560M Powerball victor can remain anonymous

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

FILE PHOTO: Palestinian Prime Minister Rami Hamdallah waves upon his arrival, in the northern Gaza Strip October 2, 2017. One had signs of blood on the door. Hamas' takeover of Gaza from the Palestinian Authority in 2007 and the ensuing Israeli-Egyptian blockade, power shortages and conflicts delayed the opening of the project for four years.

Hamdallah was not hurt and a short time later attended the inauguration of a sewage plant. "We will continue to work diligently to complete our government projects in the Gaza Strip", the PM declared.

It said it would not derail Hamdallah's visit, which comes as reconciliation agreement between Hamas and Abbas's Fatah party falters.

Hamdallah's government is recognised by the worldwide community, while Hamas is blacklisted as a terrorist organisation by the European Union and the United States.
