As you have probably heard by now, Ala’a Za’akik, 25, an Islamic Jihad member from Beit Omer, blew himself up near the entrance of a bus stop in Be’er Sheva. Ala’a aroused the suspicion of a bus driver and two security guards and the latter pursued him. Both were injured in the blast, as were some 50 civilians. Islamic Jihad and Fatah claim responsibility.
Details at Jpost.
Addendum. Muffti, in his haste to post, forgot to mention the bravery of the two guards. Their pursuit of the bomber likely saved many. Lu’ay Abu Juma, 27, and Pavel Srotzkin,23, a Jewlicious salute goes out to you guys.
