Sorry to bring down the conversation, but I knew you’d all want to know–and be devastated to know–that there was just a bombing in a mall in Netanya. This is the report from Hatzolah, which Chutzpah forwarded to me:
(6:40 Israel time), a bomb exploded in a Netanya Mall. Initial reports are about 30 wounded and a number of dead. Our prayers go out to the victims of this horrible crime.
At least two people were killed and 30 others wounded Tuesday evening when a suicide bomber blew himself up at the Hasharon mall at the entrance to the coastal town of Netanya.
Reuters news agency reported that Islamic Jihad had released a statement claiming responsibility for the attack, in a telephone call to the agency’s office in the West Bank city of Tul Karm.
According to initial reports, at least three bodies were found at the scene of the bombing, at the main entrance to the mall, including that of a suicide bomber.
And all we can do right now is to continue our prayers for peace.
