Abstract (Document Summary)

Shortly before 2 p.m., two suicide bombers rammed their stolen car into the side of a No. 841 Egged bus on Rehov Rambam and detonated their explosives. The bus had just left the central bus station and was turning onto Rehov Herbert Samuel, en route to Kiryat Shmona. Scores were injured, among them a 10-year-old boy and a seven- month-old baby. The victims, who were lightly to moderately wounded, were brought to Hillel Yoffe Hospital in [Hadera]. As of yesterday, 20 were still hospitalized.

He noted that the PA continued to support terror, despite Israel's call for a cease-fire. "We know for certain that the PA is not preventing terror activities, and unfortunately, despite an appeal from myself as well as from the president of the United States, [PA Chairman Yasser] Arafat has still not issued a cease- fire," he said.

In their videotaped joint statements, [Abul Hija] and Sabeh declared the attack an act of revenge against Israel. "My recommendation to my people is the holy war against the Jews," said Sabeh.
