The Palestinian suicide bombers who carried out attacks in Tel Aviv and Netanya were both infected with Hepatitis B, according to forensic testing of the bombers’ remains. Several people wounded in the Netanya attack are now being treated for hepatitis because they came in contact with fragments of the bomber’s body. No victims from the Tel Aviv attack were affected.
