Islamic Jihad continues its murderous work. “At least five killed in Hadera suicide bombing,” from Haaretz, with thanks to Sr. Soph:
A suicide bomber exploded in the open air market in the coastal city of Hadera a little before 4 P.M. Wednesday afternoon, killing at least five people and wounding dozens more.
At least six people were said to be in serious condition; another four sustained moderate wounds.
The explosion occurred in front of a felafel stand at the entance to the market in downtown Hadera, a city that has been a frequent target of attacks during the past five years of violence.
Islamic Jihad claimed responsibility for the attack soon after the blast, saying the bombing was retaliation for the death of its military leader, Luay Sa’adi, in an Israel Defense Forces raid in the West Bank several days ago.
So once again, in response to the killing of a “military leader,” a man who planned violent attacks against civilians, his organization kills more civilians.
