Palestinian Territories– Attack on the Palestinian Prime Minister’s convoy (13 March 2018)

France condemns the attack that targeted the convoy of Palestinian Prime Minister Rami Hamdallah on March 13, shortly after it entered the Gaza Strip.

It wishes those injured a speedy recovery and calls for a thorough investigation into the circumstances and responsibility for this attack.

France reiterates its commitment to act on behalf of the people of Gaza and its support for the inter-Palestinian reconciliation process under way for several months now, which should facilitate the return of legitimate Palestinian institutions.
