A new attack has hit Israel, this time a bomb on a bus in Tel Aviv as violence between Hamas and Israelis continues.
FOX News Radio’s Emily Wither reports from Jerusalem:
A bomb exploded in downtown Tel Aviv near the country’s defense headquarters, wounding 28 people. Chen Perez was on the bus when the bomb exploded she told me she’s in shock:
(Perez) “I saw like smoke and smell of gas. It was all white. First I didn’t understand where I am. I saw the door was open and I ran away.”
Police are searching for suspects who are now on the run.
Israel is continuing to carry out strikes inside Gaza, over 120 carried out today. While 80 rockets have been fired in to Israel from Gaza.
