Daybreak: Bombers Strike Tel Aviv Bus

21 injured in attack; Fatah’s West Bank al-Aqsa Martyrs’ Brigade claims responsibility

Print Email

Just hours ago, Tel Aviv, which had seemingly been inoculated from the violence by its distance from Gaza and the efficacy of the Iron Dome system, was struck by bombers who targeted a bus within the city limits. 21 people were injured, the most seriously injured were teenagers. None of the injuries are expected to be life-threatening.

The United States and France were among the first to condemn the attack, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, who is in the region to help revive the stalled ceasefire efforts, offered whatever assistance Israel needs. The attack was widely praised in the West Bank–where the attack reportedly originated–and in Gaza, where it was ‘blessed‘ by Hamas. The al-Aqsa Martyrs’ Brigade, which is linked to Fatah in the West Bank, took responsibility for the attack.

We’ll keep you posted as more develops.
