A bomb exploded in Bat Yam, on a Dan company bus #240 on Sunday afternoon.

Passengers had noticed a suspicious object on the bus, and informed the driver, who got everyone off the bus.

The bomb was left in a bag on a seat in the back of the bus.

The bomb exploded just as a police bomb squad member approached the bus, lightly injuring the officer. The passengers and driver were 15 meters from the bus when the explosion went off.

The Chief of Police has confirmed that the bomb was a terror attack.

    Thoughts and best wishes to the officer. Thank you sir for your braveness.

  3. Thank God for an observant passenger – saving all those lives. May the police bomb squad member quickly recover. Blessings to you all.

  4. Murray Levine says:

    The targeting of civilians is a war crime. When the Israeli military targets terrorists and innocent civilians are killed/injured the world of course condemns Israel for defending itself. Screw the world!

    Thankfully no one was killed, this time. I can't help but wonder if this is the begging of a renewed intifada or similar pogrom against the Israelli people. The islamonazis of whatever flavour rarely **** still for long when it comes to genocidal intent for Jews and other kafirs.
