At least 21 people injured in bus bombing in Tel Aviv

After many years, and a day after another rocket was fired at an area near Jerusalem, another suicide attack took place on a bus in Tel Aviv right near the military HQ, and the fortunate thing is that so far, there may not have been any deaths:
Terrorists detonated an explosive device on a public bus on Tel Aviv's Shaul Hamelech Street around noon Wednesday. A total of 21 people were injured the attack.

One person was severely injured, one moderately and one light to moderately, according to a spokesperson from the city's Ichilov Hospital. The remainder of the casualties were lightly injured or suffering shock.

Of the 21 victims brought to the hospital, the two most seriously wounded are teenagers, head of emergency medicine Prof. Halperin said, although he noted that none of them had life-threatening injuries.

Of the 21, three remain in surgery and six have already been released. The remainder were lightly wounded.

Police confirmed that the explosion was a terrorist attack, although said it did not appear to be a suicide bombing and thus police were searching the area for additional explosive devises. The bus was on Dan's number 142 line.

Driver of the targeted bus, Nachum Hertzi, 53, said he did not see anyone suspicious on the bus. After the explosion, he said he kept driving and noted the bus was rather empty.
This appears to explain why the damage is less than it could have been. For all the blabber that's been going on about truce talk, this does not help one bit.

Update: YnetNews spoke with the victims.

Update 2: it's been speculated that the terrorist who set off the bomb was targeting the defense ministry.

Update 3: more news from Big Peace.
