Twelve people were injured, none seriously, this morning when a bomb exploded at a bus station at the Beit Lid junction near Netanya. The bomb was placed in a can at the rear of the bus station which is usually used by kibbutzniks and moshavniks of the Sharon and Emek Hefer regions. Police and army personnel arrived on the scene within minutes from a nearby prison and detained 21 Arabs for questioning.

This was the second bombing attempt in the Netanya area: Last Saturday morning a major tragedy was averted when a large bomb was discovered and dismantled before it could explode in a cigarette case in the sand on the Netanya beach where thousands of people were gathered. Police disclosed today that they were holding a suspect in that incident. He was identified as Saif a-Din Badran of Tulkarem.
