Russia offers Eastern Ghouta rebels safe passage

  Russia offers Eastern Ghouta rebels safe passage Russia has offered rebels and their families safe passage out of besieged Eastern Ghouta as Syrian government forces continue to pound the opposition enclave. Load Error Russia's Defense Ministry said it would protect insurgents who accept the offer from prosecution, according to a statement by Russia's Defense Ministry. The Russian military would also provide transport and security, the statement said. Russia -- the Syrian government's most powerful ally -- has accused rebels of preventing civilians from leaving Eastern Ghouta.

The Authority said it held the enclave's dominant Hamas group responsible for the attack, stopping short of directly accusing the group of carrying out the assault, but suggesting it had failed to provide adequate security.

Gaza's Hamas-run interior ministry said the explosion hit as the prime minister's convoy passed near the northern town of Beit Hanoun. No one was injured and security services had begun an investigation, ministry spokesman Eyad Al-Bozom said.

The prime minister is based in the occupied West Bank and traveled overland, via Israel, to the Gaza Strip. Police said the explosion came shortly after Hamdallah's convoy passed by, and one witness said it appeared two cars at the end of motorcade sustained damage.

New convoy of food aid enters Syria's rebel Ghouta: ICRC

  New convoy of food aid enters Syria's rebel Ghouta: ICRC A new convoy carrying desperately needed food aid entered the rebel enclave of Eastern Ghouta near Syria's capital on Thursday, the International Committee of the Red Cross told AFP. "The convoy entered Ghouta and is going to Douma now," ICRC's communication coordinator Pawel Krzysiek said.Douma is the largest town in Ghouta, the opposition's dwindling enclave on the outskirts of the capital Damascus and the target of a blistering government assault for the past month. Even before the latest onslaught, Ghouta has been suffering a five-year government siege that has made food and medical supplies scarce.

"The Palestinian Presidency holds Hamas responsible for the cowardly targeting of the Prime Minister's convoy in Gaza," the official Palestinian news agency WAFA reported.

Hamas and Abbas's Palestinian Authority are still divided over how to implement an Egyptian-brokered reconciliation deal. Hamas seized control of the Gaza Strip in 2007.

"The attack against the government of consensus is an attack against the unity of the Palestinian people," said Nabil Abu Rdainah, a spokesman for Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas.

The explosion occurred near the spot where a U.S. diplomatic convoy was blown up by a remote-controlled bomb in 2003 shortly after it entered the Gaza Strip. Three American security specialists were killed and a U.S. diplomat was injured in that blast.
