Channel 1 reported that the two attackers were affiliated to the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine.

A Hamas spokesman this morning called the attack “heroic, ” saying it was an act of revenge for the “execution” of Palestinian Egged bus driver Yusuf Hasan al-Ramouni, 32. According to the autopsy results, al-Ramouni’s hanging,  inside his bus, on Monday, was ruled a suicide
