6 killed in Tel Aviv blast
Terror disrupts Passover celebrations once again: A large explosion rattled the old central bus station in southern Tel Aviv, in the Neveh Sha'anan neighborhood. According to Magen David Adom emergency services, six people were killed in the blast and at least 52 people were wounded, 2 of them sustaining critical wounds.
The explosion occurred at around 1:30 p.m. at a shawarma stand, where a previous bombing took place. This time, however, the blast was much stronger.
Large police forces and Magen David Adom rescue teams were dispatched to the area. According to initial estimations, a suicide bomber who was sent by one of the terror organizations carried out the attack. He apparently entered the shawarma stand and detonated himself.
The Islamic Jihad rushed to claim responsibility for the attack, as well as Fatah's al-Aqsa Martyrs' Brigades.
