Suicide bombing in Dimona

Now everyone can understand why Hamas had to break the "siege" of Gaza:
A suicide bomber blew himself up in the southern town of Dimona on Monday, killing at least one person, rescue services said, in the first terror attack of the kind since January 2007.
Eight other people were moderately wounded in the explosion, medics said.
A police spokesman said the attack was the result of a suicide bombing.
"As far as we are concerned, this is a terrorist incident," a police spokesman said.
Police officials told Army Radio that there appeared to be two attackers, although only one managed to detonate his explosives belt. The other was shot dead by authorities before detonating his belt, police said.
Authorities had been on high alert after Palestinian militants blew open Gaza's border with Egypt on January 23, raising fears that militants might sneak into Israel from Egypt.
There was no indication that the bombers had entered Israel from the Gaza Strip.
"We heard a big explosion, and people began running," a shopowner who gave her name as Ravital told Army Radio. "I saw pieces of bodies flying in the air."
Witnesses described the explosion as "massive."
A large number of rescue services and police crews rushed to the shopping center. Magen David Adom said at least 20 ambulances had arrived on the scene and were evacuating people to hospital.
The Zaka emergency service said the body of a "terrorist" and an explosives belt were found at the scene in the desert town.
There was no immediate claim of responsibility for the attack, which occurred several weeks after Israel and the Palestinians resumed peace talks opposed by Hamas, which controls the Gaza Strip.
Dimona is the site of Israel's nuclear reactor. The explosion took place about 10 kilometers from the reactor site.
The last suicide attack in Israel was on January 29, 2007, when a bomber killed three people on a commercial street in Eilat.
If more people were not killed, it was not for want of trying.

  • Muslims Against Sharia condemn the murderers responsible for the homicide bombing in Dimona as well as degenerate perpetuation of the culture of death in Gaza.

    Our prayers are with the victims of this atrocity. We send our condolences to their loved ones.

    May the homicide bomber rot in hell for eternity. May his accomplices and animals who celebrated this horrendous act join him soon!

    Muslims Against Sharia call on Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas to shut down Al-Hayat al-Jadida, Al-Iyam and Al-Quds as terrorist mouthpieces that glorify homicide bombings. Failing to do so will show that Palestinian Authority's quest for peace is nothing more than empty words.
