Reports of celebratory gunfire are coming in from Gaza after terrorists bombed a civilian bus in Tel Aviv today.

Am sure when they stop the celebratory gunfire in Gaza they’ll be disappointed that 1. Wasn’t a suicide bomber 2. No death toll #deathcult

Two bombs were planted on a bus near the Ministry of Defense, but only one exploded. It appears civilians were the target; injuries range from moderate to severe. Some ceasefire, huh?

The target of the terrorist bombing was a regular metro bus and its civilian passengers, not the Israeli Ministry of Defense.

There are reports that Hamas took credit for the attack, but wrongly called it a suicide bombing.

#Hamas claims responsibility over loudspeakers in #Gaza

— Paul Danahar (@pdanahar) November 21, 2012

Hamas took credit for ‘suicide bomber’ before finding out their guy chickened out and just tossed bomb on moving bus. No virgins for him.

— Allison K. Sommer (@alkapsom) November 21, 2012

Shortly after the attack, Hamas tweeted:

We told you #IDF that our blessed hands will reach your leaders and soldiers wherever they are, “You opened the Gates of Hell on Yourselves”

— Alqassam Brigades (@AlqassamBrigade) November 21, 2012

Other reports suggest Fatah is claiming responsibility.

Tel Aviv bus bombing, carried out by Fatah, an important reminder that many Palestinian “moderates” are in fact terrorists.

Today’s bombing is likely have an impact on ceasefire talks.

Israeli MFA: The bombing in Tel-Aviv will complicate the international efforts to reach a cease-fire in Gaza

— Barak Ravid (@BarakRavid) November 21, 2012

And some wonder if the Tel Aviv attack will hasten an Israeli ground offensive against Gaza.

Struggling to see how Israel avoids a ground invasion if there really was just a bus bombing in Tel Aviv, which seems to be the case.
