21 INJURED IN JERUSALEM BUS BOMBING
At least 21 people have been wounded, on Monday 04/18/2016 at about 18:00 local time, by a bomb explosion on a bus in south Jerusalem, Israeli police say.
Two casualties were taken to hospital in a serious condition following the blast, near the Hebron Road. A police statement said bomb disposal experts had determined that a device exploded in the back half of the bus. Many of the injured were on the bus but others were in a passing car. The car caught fire along with a second bus that was empty.
The head of the emergency department at Jerusalem’s Hadassah Medical Center told Israeli Army Radio that some of the injuries were caused by flying metal nails and nuts.
A police spokesman told Israeli Channel 2 television that investigators were still trying to determine who had planted the bomb. He declined to confirm reports that one of the two people in a serious condition was not carrying any identification papers and was considered a suspect.
Giving the fact that all injured suffers from burns and not from mashing, typical to explosive, it is most likely that the bomb was more of an improvised fire bomb suggesting a local cell is behind th bombing .
** The suspected suicide bomber, the most serious wounded with burns all over his body, died in Shaare Zedek Medical Center in Jerusalem on Wednesday 04/20/2016. Soon after Hamas issued a statement, on Wednesday night, and named him as Abdul Hamid Abu Srour (pic-L), a 19-year-old resident of the village of Beit Jala, outside Bethlehem in the West Bank. and an operative for Hamas.
** The Israeli Security Service Shin.Bet said, on Thursday 04/21/2016 it nabed a cell of Hamas members from Bet Lehem, already on Wednesday who were behind the suicide attack.
