Students killed by suicide bomber
Two Israeli teenagers on their way to school were killed today in a suicide terrorist attack near a gas station outside Kfar Saba. A suicide bomber, apparently from the Hamas militant organization, blew himself up amidst a gathering of students waiting at a bus stop. Four other teenagers were wounded, one of them in critical condition.
The blast took place near the 'Mifgash Hashalom' ('Meeting place of Peace') gas station in Neve Yamin, several hundred meters from the entrance to Moshav Sde Hemmed on the road to Kalkilya. Police reports say that the suicide bomber walked up to a group of teenagers waiting to board an armored bus for a ride to their yeshiva school in Kedumim.
A student at the scene, Shmuel Friedman, told ynet that he did not see the attacker come up to the group of teenagers. "Suddenly, there was a big explosion. I turned around. I saw my friends lying on the ground. We immediately phoned the police and tried to help the wounded with a first aid bag we had,'' Friedman said.
Nissim Trasidi, an eyewitness, told Israel Radio he had been driving along the road about 100 meters away at the time of the explosion. "All of a sudden I heard a huge explosion...and at the same moment I just froze. It was a really, really strong explosion,'' he said.
The Hamas organization claimed responsibility for this morning's suicide bombing. In a telephone call to Reuters, the Hamas also said they had been behind the suicide bombing yesterday in French Hill in Jerusalem.
The suicide bombing came along with reports of explosive devices discovered this morning in Petach Tikva and Netanya. Prime Minister Ariel Sharon, under pressure to respond to the wave of terrorism, has called a meeting of the Security Cabinet for today to discuss the government's next move.
