Download PDF for this date

A 17-year-old girl was slightly injured when a bomb exploded in the cafe-and shop-lined Dizengoff Street near Dizengoff Circle Sunday night. Inbar Shapira, of Kibbutz Amir in upper Galilee, was strolling with her parents when the bomb, concealed in a plastic bag which had been deposited in a garbage bin, went off.

“I lived safely through terrorist Katyushas at home in Galilee for years, only to come here on vacation to Tel Aviv to be hit by a bomb, ” Shapira remarked as she was taken to the hospital for treatment. At the time of the explosion, the street was filled with strollers.
