A suicide bomber, supposal Palestinian, blew himself up in a crowded Tel Aviv's central bus station. At least 10 people were wounded and one persons has serious injures.
"There was a huge boom," witness Ronit Lis told Reuters. "Everything turned black and I ran away. They began to close the area down and there are a lot of ambulances in the area."
Another witness of the disaster who was taking his lunch at a fast food close to the area were the attack took place, reported seeing the bomber and five minutes later the explosion was heard. He told Israel Radio: "All of a sudden a policeman came, he pulled him (the suspect) out, and started searching him."
This is the first attack in Israel since a truce expired at the end of last year.
Palestinian militant group Islamic Jihad claimed responsibility for the bombing a few hours after the incident, but in Gaza, senior Islamic Jihad leader Khaled al-Batsh said he could neither confirm nor deny his group was behind it.
Khaled al-Batsh explained: "Regardless of who carried out the attack, it was a natural response against the continued Israeli assassination of fighters and killing of innocents."
