Bulgaria Terror Victims Evacuated to Israel, World Leaders Condemn Attack, Israeli Leaders Warn Iran
Israeli rescue teams have gathered the 33 Israelis wounded in Wednesday’s terror attack on a tour bus in Bulgaria, and evacuated them home to Israel for treatment. The death toll in the bombing of the bus of Israeli tourists is listed at 8, with one injured person succumbing to wounds in hospital. A ZAKA rescue service spokesperson told Israel’s Army Radio that the remains were difficult to identify. Five Israeli victims will be flown home for burial Thursday evening after completion of the formal identification process. World leaders condemned the attack. Israeli leaders vowed to respond to Iran.
My stomach is tied in knots. I'm tense and I can feel my heart racing. It's been so long since I had this sense of dread choking my throat. A terrorist has blown up a bus of Israelis. Not in Israel - in Bulgaria. I'm following the news. Three dead. Five dead. At least seven dead.
After a bus carrying Israeli tourists at Bulgaria's Burgas airport exploded on Wednesday, killing seven and wounding at least 30 more, a U.N. spokesperson said that Secretary-General Ban Ki-Moon condemned the attack "in the strongest possible terms." But in reality, the U.N. chief was a lot more restrained than when, for instance, churches were bombed in Kenya two weeks ago. Words matter in diplomacy, and Ban Ki-Moon appeared to reserve his stronger words to violations of the human rights of non-Israelis.
