Palestinian Prime Minister Rami Hamdallah waves as he arrives to hold a cabinet meeting in Gaza City October 3, 2017.

An explosion struck near the convoy of Palestinian Prime Minister Rami Hamdallah in the Gaza Strip on Tuesday, according to local media.

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

Minutes after the blast, Hamdallah, appearing unhurt, delivered a speech at the inauguration of a waste treatment plant in the Gaza Strip, live TV footage showed.

"Here is Gaza, we take all security precautions to welcome all the convoys and delegations and particularly the prime minister as he entered Gaza", Buzom was quoted as saying. One had signs of blood on the door.

The World Bank, European Union and other European governments have paid almost $75 million in funding.

Greenblatt reportedly said that the conference will focus on ideas to enhance the Gaza Strip's economy and living conditions, and urged Islamic Hamas movement running the coastal enclave since 2007 to give up armed resistance and commit to peace negotiations.
