Comment by the Information and Press Department on the bomb attack against the convoy of Palestinian Prime Minister in Gaza

Wednesday, 14 March 2018 11:00

On March 13, the convoy of Palestinian Prime Minister Rami Hamdallah, who arrived at the Gaza Strip from Ramallah to take part in the opening of a water treatment station in the north of the enclave, was hit by an explosive device, wounding seven members of the security personnel escorting the head of the Palestinian Government.

Moscow strongly condemns this criminal attack that further complicates the already challenging situation in Palestine’s internal affairs. We call on all sides in Palestine to abide by the deal reached in Cairo in October 2017 whereby Palestine’s legitimate government was to assume control over the Gaza Strip with a view to restoring the unity of Palestinian territories, improving the humanitarian situation in Gaza and enhancing security.

We believe that the ultimate goal of these efforts should be for the Palestinians to achieve true national unity based on the political platform of the Palestine Liberation Organisation. Russia proceeds from the premise that this would lead the Israeli-Palestinian negotiations out of the current impasse and facilitate progress toward a final settlement based on the well-known and internationally accepted legal foundation.
