On his arrival to the Gaza Strip Wednesday, Palestinian Authority Prime Minister Rami Hamdallah was confronted by Palestinian children holding shoes and signs of protest as he arrived at the hotel where he was scheduled to give a press conference, according to the Palestinian news agency Ma'an.

Hamas spokesperson Sami Abu Zuhri called on Hamdallah to help end the discrimination against Gaza by the Palestinian Authority, adding "the unity government has failed, so far, to be a government for all Palestinians."

Despite the current unity government agreement, tensions between Hamas and the PA have been acute in the coastal enclave  since Hamas seized power in 2006.

According to Fatah spokesperson Ahmad Assaf, Hamdallah's visit was intended to "support Palestinians in Gaza and help speed up the stalled reconstruction process."
