'Bomb blast' on bus in Tel Aviv
There has been an explosion on a bus in Israel's commercial capital Tel Aviv, police say, amid continuing exchanges between Israel and militants in Gaza.

There are at least 10 injuries in what police called a "terrorist attack".

The incident comes as Israel continued its strikes on Gaza, including a key compound of the Hamas government, and militants fired more rockets at Israel.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's spokesman Ofir Gendelman said on his Twitter account that the explosion was caused by a bomb and that it was "terrorist attack".

Emergency services say five of the wounded in the bus explosion are in a serious or moderate condition.

An Israeli who witnessed the explosion told Army Radio the bus was "completely charred".

Other witnesses were reported seeing a man leaving a bomb on the bus and then running off.

#3  That should pretty much force Israels hand. Shorting Mutual of Gazoo at this time.

#2  I hope Israel does not allow this bomb blast to achieve its desired effect, which is not terror, but to incite a response the 'world' will regard as too harsh. Continue 'measured, but relentless.' Or line up a bunch of big Cats (D-9, D-11 etc.) side-to-side from the border to the beach and push the whole place into Egypt.
