Terror Attack at the Center of Tel Aviv; 13 Wounded; Major Nearby Center Closed by Police
So much for the supposed imminent ceasefire…
Has Hamas fulfilled its threats? A large explosion occurred on a bus on Shaul Hamelech Street at the center of Tel Aviv, not far from the Kirya. According to reports from the fied, many rescue forces are heading to the scene of the event, with at least 13 casualties reportedly evacuated. A suspect is being held for interrogation on suspicion of involvement in the attack.
According to information i’m hearing on the local radio stations, the police are also ordering that the Azrieli shopping center (Israel’s biggest and most crowded, since it’s right on top of a major bus and train station) be closed, which is a disturbing first. Apparently they’re worried that another attack could be headed in the direction of the shopping mall..
