Israel implicated Syria in Tuesday’s double suicide bombing in Beersheba. Syria has continued to offer logistical and financial backing to terrorist organizations operating out of Damascus, a senior military official told Ha’aretz. At least 16 people died in the bombings, the first time Palestinians have succeeded in carrying out such an attack in six months, despite repeated attempts. Thousands of Palestinians in the Gaza Strip celebrated the attacks, The Associated Press reported.
