In a suicide attack in the Gaza Strip, a Palestinian rode a bicycle to an Israel Defense Forces post and detonated explosives, killing himself and slightly wounding an Israeli army soldier. Relatives of the 24-year-old Palestinian said he was affiliated with Islamic Jihad and said they were very proud of his actions. Israel’s army commander in the area called the attack a “disgusting” example of the Palestinians’ use of a young person, whose school bag was packed with a “sandwich and a bomb.”
