First suicide bombing in 13 months kills three Israelis

This is still very much a developing story from about 90 to 120 minutes ago.

Reports are coming in from Dimona, Israel, of a suicide bombing at a shopping centre in the town, killing at least three Israeli civilians. This is the first suicide bombing in Israel since January 2007. Police are saying two bombers were involved, but only one was successful.

There has as yet been no claims of responsibility. Five other people were injured in the bombing. CNN’s Ben Wedeman told CNN International earlier that the blast took place close to where it is suspected Israel has a nuclear reactor, however it has not caused any damage to the reactor and there has not been a leak.

More updates from the BBC or CNN.

UPDATE: The Fatah-linked al-Aqsa Martyrs Brigade has claimed responsibility for the attack.

  1. Muslims Against Sharia condemn the murderers responsible for the homicide bombing in Dimona as well as degenerate perpetuation of the culture of death in Gaza.

    Our prayers are with the victims of this atrocity. We send our condolences to their loved ones.

    May the homicide bomber rot in hell for eternity. May his accomplices and animals who celebrated this horrendous act join him soon!

    Muslims Against Sharia call on Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas to shut down Al-Hayat al-Jadida, Al-Iyam and Al-Quds as terrorist mouthpieces that glorify homicide bombings. Failing to do so will show that Palestinian Authority’s quest for peace is nothing more than empty words.
