    (ANSAmed) - TEL AVIV - Israeli police on Tuesday stopped Palestinian Premier Rami Hamdallah's car while he was travelling in the West Bank along a road between Nablus and Ramallah, Ynet reports. The newspaper said the premier's car was stopped because the driver had exceeded the speed limit. Hamdallah reportedly protested and asked for a formal apology from Israel. The PNA issued a statement to protest against the incident.

    The premier later told Palestinian news agency Maan he had the impression that the Israeli officers, who were together with a group of settlers, were waiting for his car and had carried out a planned 'attack'. He said Israelis asked, in vain, for his bodyguards to get out of the car.

    A few weeks ago former PNA premier Ahmed Qrei was stopped in the West Bank by Israeli police officers for allegedly exceeding speed limits. (ANSAmed).
