Bus Stop Bomb Explodes In Jerusalem; Dozens Injured

 From Haaretz, reports of the first serious bombing in Jersualem in some time:


A bomb exploded Wednesday at a crowded bus stop outside the International Convention Center in Jerusalem, just opposite the central bus station. At least 25 people were wounded in the incident, four of them seriously.


All of the casualties have been evacuated to the Hadassah Hospital in Ein Karem. The Magen David Adom emergency services said that there were no fatalities.

It wasn't clear yet whether it was a suicide bomb.

As AlterNet has been reporting, the situation in the Gaza strip has also been in decline, and Israeli shells accidentally killed a number of civilians in Gaza yesterday.
