Ali al Sarari told The Associated Press the gunmen were riding in a vehicle without licence plates.
Mr al Sarari said they opened fire at the three-car convoy of prime minister Mohammed Salem Bassindwa, spraying the speeding vehicles with bullets.
Mr al Sarari said some of the vehicles were pockmarked but Mr Bassindwa escaped unharmed.
It was not clear who was behind the attack but militants have carried out a number of assassinations, mainly against security officers.
