Palestinian Prime Minister Rami Hamdallah's convoy was stopped by Israeli forces for the third time in two weeks, Palestinian news agency Ma'an reported.

Hamdallah was detained for 45 minutes at the checkpoint near the District Coordination Office at the entrance to Ramallah on his way from Nablus in the northern West Bank.

His convoy was stopped twice on January 14 by Israeli police in the village of Turmusayya near Ramallah.

At the time of the first incident, Israeli police said Hamdallah's convoy was stopped because it was driving "recklessly and endangering other road users."
