At least 20 confirmed injured and three critical in an explosion on a bus in central Tel Aviv near Shaul Ha Melech Street. Police have reported that the blast was a terrorist attack.
Police are now reportedly searching for two men involved in the attack, contradicting previous reports of a single suspect. Eyewitnesses reported seeing the bomber run away from the scene, Israeli radio said.
“There was an apparent explosion on a bus in Shaul HaMelech Street in Tel Aviv. The background and circumstances are not clear yet,” police spokeswoman Luba Samri told AFP.
IDF spokesperson Avital Leibovich says in her twitter that bus explosion happened “under my Tel Aviv office”, possibly due to a bomb or suicide bomber. Ambulance sirens heard. The bus’ which exploded in Tel Aviv belongs to Eged Company and stops in front of the Defence Ministry.
The bomb was not a suicide attack and was triggered remotely, RT’s Tel Aviv bureau reported.
Another explosive that did not detonate was reportedly found on the bombed bus.
This bombing is the first terror attack in Tel Aviv since 2006, Israel’s Channel 10 reported.
We must entertain the idea that Israel could be the perpetrator of this attack. Feeling the heat of the world pressure to stop the massacre in Gaza we must wonder if Israel it is the hand that directed this bus attack to blame the Palestinians, and to divide the attention of the world. Israel knows well how to play the tune of the propaganda. Its favorite note, “Victim-hood”
The White House quickly condemned the bus bombing, calling attacks on innocent civilians “outrageous”:
The United States condemns today’s terrorist attack on a bus in Tel Aviv. Our thoughts and prayers are with the families of those injured, and with the people of Israel. These attacks against innocent Israeli civilians are outrageous. The United States will stand with our Israeli allies, and provide whatever assistance is necessary to identify and bring to justice the perpetrators of this attack. The United States reaffirms our unshakeable commitment to Israel’s security and our deep friendship and solidarity with the Israeli people.
Israel News are reporting that Hamas claimed responsibility. There is no official statement from Hamas of such claim. Beside Hamas is looking for cease of fire, it is not possible to such atrocity to happen, when Hamas is seen the carnage that Israel is doing in Gaza. Do not believe the Israeli News or any West Outlet.
Never forget the explosion of the King David Hotel in Jerusalem. Jews are able deliver pain in their own people to fulfill an agenda.
“It will be recalled that after Black Sabbath (Saturday), Menahem Begin received a letter from Moshe Sneh (chief of the Haganah General Headquarters) with instructions to blow up the King David. After preparatory work and several postponements, Irgun fighters gathered at 7 am. on Monday, July 22, 1946 at the Bet Aharon Talmud Torah seminary in Jerusalem. They arrived one by one, gave the password and assembled in one of the classrooms. They realized that they were being sent on a mission, but none of them knew what the target was. Shortly afterwards, the senior command arrived and it was only when the briefing began that the assembled fighters discovered that they were going to strike at the King David Hotel.
After the weapons had been distributed, the first unit – the group of “porters” – commanded by Yosef Avni, set out. Their assignment was to reach the hotel by bus and to wait at the side entrance so as to assist in unloading the explosives from the van when it arrived. All six “porters” were disguised as Arabs so as to avoid arousing suspicion. The strike force left next in a van loaded with seven milk-churns, each containing 50 kilograms of explosives and special detonators. The commander of the operation, Yisrael Levi (Gidon), rode in the van dressed as a Sudanese waiter, while his deputy, Heinrich Reinhold (Yanai), and the other members of the unit, were dressed as Arabs.”
