Bomb Explodes in Petach Tikva, but Nobody is Reported Injured

Download PDF for this date

Nobody was hurt when an explosive charge went off near Beilinson Hospital in Petach Tikva Tuesday morning. The explosion, shortly after 9 a.m., was heard over a wide area.

The explosive device had been placed at the bottom of a trash can near a bus stop, which was empty of passengers at the time because of the Purim holiday.

The explosion caused little damage.

A search of the garbage receptacle by police sappers shortly afterward uncovered another bomb, which had failed to explode.
