Shrapnel bomb rocks Jerusalem bus stop this morning
- four years since a bomb was last set off in Jerusalem
- 24 people injured, as the bomb shot out shrapnel
- one person killed in the incident, an Israeli source
» The old tension beginning to boil again: This bomb attack comes on the heels of rocket and mortar attacks launched from Gaza on Wednesday, which wounded one person. That attack was called retaliation by some Palestinians, in response to Israeli air strikes that killed eight people, amongst them three children. So, basically, this is all (still) shot to hell, and with Israeli/Palestinian peace talks having fallen apart last year, it’s anybody’s guess what the future holds for this most bloody and depressing of conflicts.
