Palestinian Authority Prime Minister Rami Hamdallah canceled a planned visit to the Gaza Strip following a series of explosions that targeted the homes and vehicles of senior Fatah officials Friday morning.

No one was hurt in the predawn blasts. An explosive device also went off at the site where Fatah was planning to hold a rally to commemorate Yasser Arafat, who died in November 2004.

Fatah accused Hamas of being behind the explosions to foil the rally plans. Hamas denied any link and vowed to investigate.
