337 Bus Attack Casualties Reported

Download PDF for this date

The Egged bus cooperative reported Sunday that 337 people have been hurt in 3,136 attacks on its passenger buses since the Palestinian uprising began in the administered territories 18 months ago.

But there have been no fatalities. Egged said 42 of its buses were damaged.

Bus windows have been reinforced with wire mesh to decrease the possibility of injury from flying objects.

Egged, which predates the state by many years, provides interurban and local bus services throughout Israel, except in the Tel Aviv area, where the Dan bus cooperative holds the franchise.
