Blast hits Hamas official's car in Gaza
The blast, which caused no casualties, comes as political tensions mount in the Palestinian territory
Gaza city: A bomb blew up the car of an official with the Palestinian Islamist movement Hamas in Gaza, the second such attack in recent weeks, a security source said on Saturday. The blast that occurred late on Friday night and caused no casualties, comes as political tensions mount in the Palestinian territory.
“Police have started investigating after a makeshift bomb blew up the car of Sheikh Sami Hams in Nuseirat refugee camp” south of Gaza City, a security official said.
The vehicle had been parked outside and was completely destroyed, according to witnesses. It was the latest in a series of unclaimed attacks in Gaza. On January 20, a bomb struck the car of the chief financial officer in the Hamas military police outside his home.
