Double Bombing at Bus Stops in Ramot Hurls Israel Back to Bygone Era of Terror
Boro Park 24 Staff
A bomb planted by terrorists exploded at a Ramot bus stop at the entrance to Jerusalem around 7:06 this morning.
Tragically, Aryeh Shchupak, a sixteen-year-old American living in Har Nof, was murdered at the Weitzman Boulevard bus stop at the entrance to the Yerushalayim. He was on his way to Yeshiva. Thirty-one individuals were wounded.
The Weitzman Boulevard bomb was dropped off in a bag by a terrorist on an electric bike.
The second explosion, hidden on a moped, went off twenty-nine minutes later at 7:35, also in Ramot. Three more were injured in the second explosion from glass and shrapnel as the bomb was full of metal pieces to maximize pain and suffering. A number of people were also treated for shock.
Police are looking into a possible third bomb in Ramot, while there are also reports of another bomb found nearby on Tuesday.
True to form, Hamas aired a congratulatory message, blaming the terrorist attack on Israel’s attempts to Jewify Al Aqsa.
