“לעשות נקמה בגויים”
לפני דקות ספורות בוצע פיגוע קשה בלב לבה של בירתנו הקדושה,ירושלים.
במרחק כ400 מטר מהכותל המערבי.
מתקפת טרור חמורה של מספר מחבלים על רכב הסעות מלא בנוסעים יהודים.
כ10 בקבוקי תבערה הפכו את הרכב למלכודת אש מסוכנת שרק בנס גדול לא גבתה מחיר בנפש.
דרושה נקמה ממשלתית! pic.twitter.com/5805OIBDgC

According to King, it was “a severe terror attack by a number of terrorists on a transport vehicle full of Jewish passengers. about 10 Molotov cocktails turned the car into a dangerous fire trap, which only by a miracle did not end up costing lives.”
“Damned terrorists tried to murder families while they were driving to a house in the village of Shiloach,” King reported. “A well-planned ambush by a number of terrorists, during which 10 Molotov cocktails were thrown at a bus with passengers, which almost became a death trap.”
King, called on Minister of Public Security Gilad Erdan and Mayor Moshe Leon to take action against PLO operatives who have taken residence in Jerusalem.
Correction: The original article said the minibus was a tourist bus. The bus is for transporting local residents.
